Turkey Trot

November 1, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - November 22, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Check websites for hours at each winery. All wineries are closed on Thanksgiving.

Have you ever asked yourself what wines pair with Thanksgiving dinner?  This is a tricky question. With all the complex yet traditional flavors of the holiday, picking the perfect wine for your table may be more challenging than you think, hence how this event came about.

The Winegrowers of the Grand River Valley take out all the guessing when it comes to selecting the right wine for your feast.  From Gewurztraminers, Rieslings and Dry Rosé wines to more non-traditional options like wines infused with flavors of cranberries, there is something for everyone’s table!

This event is hosted during the Fall in November right before the holiday season. The 2023 Turkey Trot will be daily, in November, from the 1st to the 22nd from 12-5PM at each location.

Join Debonné Vineyards, Ferrante Winery & Ristorante, Grand River Cellars Winery & Restaurant, Laurello Vineyards, & Cask 307 Winery for wine sampling paired with the flavors of a Thanksgiving meal.

Patrons will visit each of the five wineries in any order they choose. Each winery will provide samples of their wines along with a delicious appetizer and recipes.

Cost is $9 per person at each winery. Price includes wine samples, hearty appetizers, and recipes. Each winery will make a monetary contribution to the local food banks in the area.
