Red Wing Dove
Way Out Wineries Summertime Cookoff Wine Trail

2019 Summertime Cook-Off: Dates TBD

You get to be the judge! Who will be the next Top Winery Chef? Who will take the trophy away from Red Wing Dove, the 2017 Cook-off winner? This year the Summertime Cook-Off Road Trip brings you an exciting weekend of not only outstanding award winning wines, but outstanding food, too. The Winery Chefs kick it up as they compete in this annual contest. Each winery will provide complimentary wine tastings and a taste of their entry in the cook-off using their “secret ingredients” to make their sausage dish into the winning creation. In recent years they’ve prepared brisket, pork loin, and last year’s hamburger. This year’s meat is sausage and the theme again is “Passport: Around the World.” The coveted trophy and bragging rights for an entire year motivate the winery chefs to put up their best efforts (and maybe some underhanded bribes) for YOUR votes. Collect your logoed wine tasting glass and your Passport at your first stop then visit all eleven wineries during the weekend. At the last winery visited, turn in your official ballot and cast your vote for your favorite winery’s entry.





It’s Cook- Off Time!!

The Cook-Off Classic is an exciting weekend this year!! June 22nd, 23rd, and 24th and the ticket price is $35.00. You get the customary logoed tasting glass, food pairing, and also a vote as to which of the eleven wineries has the best entree. In this case, every winery will be cooking the same meat: sausage.

So you, as the culinary judge that you are, get to cast your ballot at the last winery you visit to decide who had the best dish. We have a couple of wineries going way out of the box and presenting their dish in very non typical ways so YOU get to be the Wine Chef Judge today and settle the argument.

Get your tickets today and help move the trophy along from its current home or maybe it stays just where it is at Red Wing Dove!
