This Labor Day weekend, Gourmet on Gore brings Vail Village to life with four days of gourmet fine food and drink. As we all know, Vail is a great place to visit in the winter. Some love it even more in the summer! Vail’s relaxing mountain oasis provides a beautiful background to sip internationally renowned wine, beer and spirits, and taste bites from world-class restaurants along the quaint streets of Vail Village. Proceeds from the event benefit the Vail Veterans Program. The program offers military injured and their families free world-class therapeutic programs designed to build confidence, create life-long relationships, and tap into the freedom the mountains bring out in all of us.
Highlights from the weekend include a Friday night Gourmet on Gore Tasting Tour presented by Alpine Bank. This gives participants a progressive evening around town to enjoy some of Vail’s finest restaurants and hot spots for the perfect start to the Gourmet on Gore weekend. Each location will include a signature beverage as well as savory hors d’oeuvres to keep your taste buds happy.
Saturday and Sunday feature more of Vail’s finest foods with an open-air tasting on Gore Creek Drive & Willow Bridge Road with pay-as-you-go for bites and pours. That afternoon, Slifer Smith & Frampton provides an Open House Tour. Swing by their LIVE LOCAL booth during the open air tasting for more information! While you are there, feel free grab a treat for you and your four-legged friend! There’s a complimentary Kids’ Culinary Corner for culinary activities, crafts and fun just for kids!
Finally, Monday brings Brunch off Bridge Street, a stroll through the heart of Vail Village for one final palate-pleasing day. Enjoy mouthwatering pay-as you go brunch delights, wines, beers and spirits paired with easy-listening music.
We love great food, so combined with a good cause this weekend is looking downright irresistible!
