PARK CITY, Utah (April 2, 2015) — It’s back!
The Park City Food & Wine Classic returns for its eleventh straight year this summer, featuring more than two dozen food and wine tastings, seminars, bike rides, hike excursions and more — all led by world-renowned experts in Park City’s famous Wasatch Mountains.
“This event blends the absolute best of Park City: outstanding food and drinks, and world-class outdoors,” said Jason Ornstein, owner of Team Player Productions, which organizes the Food & Wine Classic. “There are experiences for every sense — taste, smell, sight, touch. I can’t think of a better way to spend a long summer weekend.”
The weekend runs from July 9 to July 12, opening with classic-favorite bike rides, stand-up paddle-boarding and wine tastings — plus newcomers featuring yoga and a trip to the shooting range. It closes the famed “Hair of the Dog” bike ride, plus sumptuous “Brunch Brunch Baby” and “It’s a Mary Morning” brunches.
In between, learn wine-tasting secrets from Master Sommeliers, taste whiskeys from Park City’s award-winning High West distillery, dig into a “Bacon & Barrels” meat-and-red-wine luncheon, and take dashes through the woods, rides on horseback, mountain-biking trips on Park City’s famous single-track trails, and much more.
“We’ve got all the makings of a truly memorable weekend,” Ornstein said. “Whether you love active get-up-and-go vacations or complete and total relaxation — or even a bit of both — our seminars and their leaders will make sure you have the experience of a lifetime.”
Ticket prices range from $50 for the “Blues & Brunch” — combining live local music with a mouthwatering southern-style brunch buffet — to $225 for “Guns N Roses,” a backcountry Ranger tour of clay shooting, followed by a delicious outdoor lunch at Victory Ranch.
