23rd Annual Wine Festival Returns in 2023

The Killington Wine Fest returns for its 23rd year July 21-22! Hosted by the
Killington Pico Area Association (KPAA), wine lovers, and aficionados are invited to enjoy new wines
amidst stunning views of the Green Mountains of Vermont.

The event kicks off the evening of Friday, July 21st at 4,241 feet with the Estate Gala at the Peak
Lodge at Killington Resort. Select wineries will be offering samples from their collections of
estate and reserve wines. Representatives will be on hand to discuss each wine and educate
attendees about the nuances of the fine wines being sampled. Going a bit more formal this year
Estate Gala guests can put on their finest and dress-to-impress! A gondola ride to the peak, music,
reserve and estate tastings, paired with delectable foods round out this exclusive evening.
Tickets to the Estate Gala are limited so act fast!

On Saturday, July 22nd, the signature event of the festival weekend—the Grand Tasting—will be
held in Killington Resort’s stunning new K1 Lodge. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a
seemingly endless variety of wines and local artisanal foods. Admission to the event includes 25
one-ounce tastings, wine-friendly fare, and a signature wine glass. Festival goers will enjoy live
music and an array of local artisans.

The Grand Tasting will also offer a VIP experience. VIP ticket holders for the Grand Tasting receive early
access to the K1 Lodge event, a private lounge area, specially furnished by Wild Fern Boutique VT,
exclusive wine samplings, and local artisan foods!

The Killington Wine Trail, running concurrently, will showcase curated wines and food pairings
at participating restaurants and local businesses. Wine Trail details will be available in May.
