Cheese – Not a Solo Act: A Shawnee Hills Wine Trail Event

March 4, 2017 @ 11:00 am - March 5, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Is there anything more classic than the perfect wine paired with the right cheese?  Enjoy a fun-filled weekend of cheese infused dishes that showcase how cheese can play the perfect supporting role to award-winning wines.  This progressive tasting along the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail is a great weekend to explore different types of cheeses with different styles of Illinois wine.


How it Works: Pre-purchase your ticket online and select your starting point.  The first winery that you visit will give you a souvenir wine glass and your tasting ticket. Bring your ticket to each location along the trail to enjoy your pairings. Leave your completed/stamped tasting ticket at the last winery visited to be entered for a chance to win a great prize from one of our associate members.

Event Hours:  Saturday, March 4, 7(11:00am-5:00pm) and Sunday, March 5, 2017 (12:30pm-5:00pm)

Ticket Information: $35.00 per person until February 26, 2017

Ticket Includes: One sample of wine and a sample dish that is chosen to pair perfectly with the selected wine at each of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail wineries; one souvenir Shawnee Hills Wine Trail logo wine glass; and entry into a drawing for fabulous prizes along the trail. Pairings can be enjoyed on one or both days of the event.
