Vintner's Holiday: Yosemite Wine Tasting and Food Event

Vintners’ Holidays®

Vintners' Holidays at Yosemite

As autumn gives way to winter, accentuate your Yosemite vacation with a touch of elegance as prominent winemakers showcase their vintages during Vintners’ Holidays at Yosemite.

Join us for Vintners’ Holidays as we celebrate winemakers' fall harvests with our enlightening Yosemite wine tastings and seminars, an intimate reception to meet winemakers in person, and a divine five-course gala dinner where each course is thoughtfully developed and prepared by Executive Chef Percy Whatley and The Ahwahnee Culinary Team to complement the often rare or limited-release wines shared by the participating wineries.
