The Shawnee Hills Wine Trail is set to host its annual autumn food and wine pairing event, which they're calling "Autumn Inspirations." Participants will have the chance to visit several member wineries and vineyards, where they can sample specially made dishes paired with Southern Illinois wine.
The event runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, and from 12:30 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4. Tickets are $35 each, and must be purchased by Sunday, Oct. 28.
When tickets are purchased, select a starting point on the wine trail. The first winery visited on the trail will provide a tasting ticket and souvenir wine glass. The ticket is then stamped at each location visited along the trail. Completed tickets may be entered into a drawing to win a wine trail tour from Shawnee Shuttle.
Participants must be 21.
