Killington Wine Festival

If it's the middle of July....it's time to drink wine in Killington.

The Killington Wine Festival returns this weekend to Killington with events of Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Formal events run by the Killington Pico Area Association include an Estate Tasting of fine wines on Killington Peak on Friday evening and the Grand Tasting at Killington's K1 Base Lodge during the afternoon on Saturday. Sanctioned KPAA events run by local businesses include the Killington Wine Trail on Friday evening, several wine dinners on Saturday evening, and "Wine And Nine" at the Green Mountain National Golf course on Sunday afternoon.

At the inn, we are getting ready to hold 2 different wine events at the inn over the weekend.

On Friday evening, as part of the Killington Wine Trail, we will be hosting J. Lohr Vineyards. During the Wine Trail, we will be featuring 2 different small plates paired with appropriate wines. Chef Colin will be paring a J. Lohr Flume Crossing Sauvignon Blanc with an Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl. He also will be pairing J. Lohr South Ridge Syrah with Duck Wellington. The Wine Trail is always a great "hang out" event at the bar in the Great Room. Just a perfect "starter" to get the palate reved up for the overall wine weekend.

On Saturday night, Birch Ridge will feature our annual Killington Wine Festival Dinner. (Our 17th and counting). This year we will be featuring 6 different wines from Wente Vineyards paired with some beautiful dishes Chef Collin has been crafting since before we took our spring hiatus in May. To get you thinking about the dinner, the final entree for the evening is an incredible champagne butter poached lobster paired with a Wente Riva Ranch Chardonnay. The full menu for the wine dinner is available on our website .

While the Wine Trail on Friday evening is a drop in no reservations event, the Wine Dinner on Saturday is a different story. Seating is limited. If you would like a reservation for our wine dinner you can make it online or give us a call at the inn at 800.435.8566 or 802.422.4293.

In addition to the Friday and Saturday restaurant events, we are also offering full lodging packages with tickets to the Killington Wine Festival and reservations for our Wine Dinner on Saturday.

Whether you decide to make a weekend out of it, or just stop in for the Wine Trail on Friday night, we hope to see you this weekend at the Killington Wine Festival.

Where ever you may be, keep it in the fairway, and don't for get your sun screen.
