Dinner in the Vineyard

On Sunday, September 12 at 3:30 pm, join us for our third annual Dinner in the Vineyard: A celebration local farms and local chefs. The evening will include a cocktail hour with passed appetizers, libations and live music by Island musicians. A vineyard tour will be followed by a community, family-style meal featuring fresh seasonal produce and local dishes and beverages prepared by local chefs.

Enjoy a five course meal, with wine and cider included, prepared by Hotel Washington, Roots Inn and Kitchen, Heidi Gilbertson, Door County Chocolate Design, Island Orchard Cider, Island Adventure Point Grill, and other top Door County chefs, makers and artisans. Stay tuned for more details! 

All proceeds go to benefit Gathering Ground, a nonprofit on Washington Island dedicated to cultivating community and learning in partnership with the generous earth through agriculture. Gathering Ground has a vision for thriving communities connected to the environment and their food through work and play.

We are so excited that our annual dinner is back after taking a break in 2020 due to COVID. With outdoor seating and tents we will follow CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of our guests, volunteers, and chefs. 

Tickets are $135 per person. 

We are grateful to Nicolet Bank for sponsoring this event!
