On the weekend of November 7th and 8th, the Wine Road is hosting a very special affair along the wine road—A Wine & Food Affair.

If you are a wine lover who is also foodie, or just enjoy scrumptious food paired with delicious wine, this is one affair you don’t want to miss.

This two-day event gives ticket holders the opportunity to drive from winery to winery to taste wine and food while enjoying the autumn colors that decorate the countryside. With over 100 wineries participating, visitors will have more than enough choices.

Best of all, if you fall in love with a wine and food pairing, you can purchase the wine at the winery and do your own pairing at home. All the recipes will be on the Wine Road website by the weekend of the event and remain on the site so you’ll always have access to them.
