Galena Cellars' Snowshoe Hike and Wine TastingGalena Cellars and Blaum Bros Distillery have teamed up with Fever River Outfitters to create a series of snowshoe hike/tasting events that will exercise both your legs and your tastebuds!

“Hike the Vines” and “Snowshoe Trek n Taste” both involve getting out into the great outdoors as well as getting back inside and tasting some great local wines and spirits!

Fever River Outfitters always has an event schedule loaded with fun ways to get out and about. Biking, hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking, yoga and more. You name it, Fever River Outfitters likley has an event based around it.

That being said, combining snowshoeing with wine or liquor tasting is genius. What better combination than some outdoor winter exercise followed up with a tasting that will both rejuvenate and warm you right back up?

Galena Cellars – Hike The Vines!

Saturdays, December 2016 through February 2017, noon to 2pm or 2pm to 4pm

The “Hike the Vines” snowshoe hike and wine tasting involves an afternoon snowshoe through the Galena Cellars vineyard. We’ll meet up at Fever River Outfitters and take a shuttle out to Galena Cellers’ vineyard. If the weather doesn’t cooperate by providing sufficient snow, the snowshoe trek becomes a hike. Participants follow the trail at their own pace, winding up back at the winery for a wine tasting. Great fun!

“Hike the Vines” is only $45 per person and includes snowshoe rental, wine tasting, and the shuttle ride to and from Galena Cellars vineyard. If you provide your own showshoes, the cost is only $25!

Blaum Bros Distillery – “Snowshoe Trek n Taste”

Saturdays, December 2016 through February 2017, 1:30pm

The “Snowshoe Trek n Taste” is a similar concept to the above, except that attendees will meet at Blaum Bros Distillery, not Fever River Outfitters. Once assembled, your guide will take you to a nearby wooded trail for a fifteen minute snowshoe (or hike, weather depending). Afterwards, you’ll return to Blaum Bros Distillery for a tasting of their products and a tour of their facilities!
