Small Plates

The wildly popular Small Plates events—intimate progressive dinners along the trail—will be held Friday, February 28; Friday, May 29; and Thursday, August 13. Enjoy a glass of wine paired with a gourmet tapas dish in the tasting rooms of up to three wineries during this unique dinner event that will take place three times in 2020! Many wineries partner with local chefs to prepare and serve each delicious pairing. Culinary aficionados will enjoy this upscale, gourmet dining experience. It’s a great time to learn about local wines and stock up on favorites.

Tickets are $20 per seating, and you may get tickets for one, two or three seatings, each at the winery of your choice. Seating times are roughly 6 pm, 7:10 pm and 8:20 pm. Tickets must be ordered in advance for this event and always sell out quickly.
