Taste the Season

Taste the Season

What better way to spend a November weekend that sampling delicious VQA Wine & Food pairings all day long!  

Taste the Season is one of our favorite events of the year, not only for the great food pairings and amazing wines on offer but also for the beautiful Fall colors on the trees!

We are currently selling out fast for the Saturdays in November, but why not miss the crowds and come and join us on a Friday or Sunday (the event is on every Fri, Sat & Sun in November!) and spend more time enjoying the scenery and wines avaiable without those line-ups!

Our transportation is $69 + Tax per person per day (if you have your own passes already)

If you would like us to purchase the passes for you then the total price is $117 + Tax per person which gets you Transport and Tastings! 

See below for all of the tantalizing pairings for 2015!
