“I cook with wines. Sometimes I even add it to the food.” W.C. Fields

 EVERY WEEKEND
Friday evening, the weekend will begin with a Wine Tasting paired with Hor’s d’oeuvres and Supper at Wickwood featuring cuisine from the featured country . Our wine experts will lead us through the Tasting and answer questions along the way. Later that evening the incredible Michael Holmes and Mark Kahney will croon a tune or two --- and we’ve been known to roll up the rug and sing along.
 
Saturday Morning we’ll have a vintage Champagne and Sparkling Wine Tasting, matched to a very special Wickwood Brunch. Afterwards, Julee will lead a cooking class based on authentic dishes of the country we’re “visiting” that weekend. By noon, everyone will be out wandering through the galleries and shops of Saugatuck and Douglas.
 
Saturday Evening we will all be entertained at The Journeyman Café where Chef Mathew Millar and his staff will prepare a special Winemakers Dinner with the menu based on our featured country and wine flights from his own distinctive wine list. Chef Millar certainly “lives within his harvest” by cooking globally yet shopping locally. This will surely be a superb dinner.
 
Sunday morning Wickwood’s Traditional Champagne Brunch will be served followed by gifts and goodbyes. We promise, it will have been a weekend to remember!!!!
