Washington Island, Wis. (July 30, 2021) – Gathering Ground has announced that its third annual fundraiser, “Dinner in the Vineyard,” will take place on Sunday, September 12 on Washington Island. The event offers the opportunity to enjoy a five-course dinner and drinks from top local chefs, bartenders, breweries and wineries, featuring local, seasonal ingredients in Gathering Ground’s beautiful vineyard. Tickets can be purchased through Door County Tickets at: https://doorcountytickets.com/events/dinner-in-vineyard-2021-9-12-2021.
The evening includes a cocktail hour with passed appetizers, libations and live music by Island musicians. A vineyard tour will be followed by a community, family-style meal featuring fresh seasonal produce and local dishes and beverages prepared by local chefs.
