Turkey Trot


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 nontraditional wines 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.

Join Debonné Vineyards, Ferrante Winery & Ristorante, Grand River Cellars Winery & Restaurant, Laurello Vineyards, & Cask 307 Winery for an afternoon of wine sampling paired with the 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. Area maps will be provided at all wineries to help patrons plan their trail.

Cost is paid 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 from proceeds of the event.

Check our event calendar for information specific to the upcoming event, including the featured appetizers, date(s) and pricing.

    Is the WGGRV turkey trot usually held on the first Saturday in November each year? Or does this change from year to year?
