Vail hosts fine food for a cause this Labor Day!

Enjoying Vail in the summertime!

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!
