For foodies, true joy comes from experiencing all that food brings to the table: exploration, discovery, connection, and joy – on the plate, in the glass, and around the table. Set against a landscape like no other, Culinary Village celebrates our surroundings and is dedicated to craftsmanship through a balance of the past + present. See More Here!

You can experience features like: complimentary commemorative crystal CHSWF glass, live music, a retail destination featuring regional artisans, pop-up farmer’s market, Book Nook with daily meet + greets and author signings, and official CHSWF merchandise.
