Wine and Dine
One of the favorite events at the Blue Ridge Wine and Food Festival is the "wine dinner."
That's where a winery or wine distributor participating in the festival teams up with one of the High Country's finest restaurants to produce a one-of-a-kind multi-course meal.
This year, the wine dinners are selling like hot cakes! If you see a pairing of vintner and restaurant that looks appealing, you should waste little time securing your seats.
Here are the times and pairings for this year's wine dinners:
Restaurant G will pair with Coturri Wines on Thursday and Saturday, April 14 & 16, and with Robert Temmler Winery on Friday, April 15.
Crippen's Country Inn will pair with Montinore Estates on Friday, April 15.
