- Mad River Taste Place pairing
Visitors to Waitsfield's Mad River Taste Place get to know the sweeter side of Vermont's wine industry. Through a winemaker-guided tasting, guests will compare honey wines by Artesano Mead with ice ciders and berry-based pours from Boyden Valley Winery & Spirits, Windfall Orchard, Eden Specialty Ciders and Lincoln Peak Vineyard, among others. Between sips, curated nibbles — think perfectly paired local cheeses and handmade charcuterie — will provide a salty counterbalance to the fruit.
Explore Ice Cider, Mead, Fruit Wine & Food Pairings: Tuesday, October 23, 5:30-7 p.m., Mad River Taste Place, Waitsfield. $10-15. Info, 434-2000, vermontfresh.net.
