If you have a green thumb, and even if you don't, you definitely don’t want to miss our 23rd Annual Wine & Herb Festival. Build your garden full of fragrant herbs and veggies. You’ll receive a wine glass, a garden plan and a plant carrier at your starting point winery plus potted herb or veggie plants from each of the 16 participating wineries.

As you savor herb-prepared cuisine, you’ll be offered a wine that compliments that dish and be able to take home the recipes, so that you can be the highlight at your next get together. You’ll also be offered up to 3 additional wine tastings.
