First Weekend in August

Enjoy delightful picnic style pairings with your favorite Shawnee Hills Wine Trail Wines. With summer in full force, a relaxing outdoor picnic is just what the doctor ordered. Grab a few friends and enjoy fresh, local foods of the season with award-winning reds, whites and rose's from your favorite wineries.

First Weekend in November

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.
