Celebrate the release of the second edition of Seasons in a Vermont Vineyard: The Shelburne Vineyard Cookbook. This beautiful book evokes the romance of a lush vineyard heavy with fruit and embraces the festive tradition of sharing food and wine in celebration of the grape harvest. In addition to book talk and Q&A, we'll have some light snacks inspired by the cookbook with wine by Shelburne Vineyard.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Vermont is a food lover's paradise. From its verdant and fertile farmland, regional specialties are emerging. We have an abundant selection of locally raised meats, poultry, produce and fruits, as well as world-class artisanal cheeses, award-winning spirits, ciders, beers and, of course, wine.
