When you think “Fall Fun Days”, what comes to mind? Crisp blue, sunny skies, apple picking, choosing the perfect pumpkin and switching the menu to include heartier fall fare. We took inspiration from these, as well as tradition fall events such as Oktoberfest, harvest and Halloween to create our Fall Fun Days taking place on our outdoor, covered patio at our Kingsville Winery location during the month of October.

If you’re not in the area or want to celebrate sweater weather in your own space, we hope the recipes and wine pairings based on our Fall Fun Days help you create your own fall fun.
Fall Fun Days
Oktoberfest – Sunday, October 3rd
Not just about beer, Oktoberfest’s origins go back to 1810. Find out more here. The flavours of Oktoberfest are rich, warm and great for an outdoor dining experience. After all, long picnic-style tables are also an Oktoberfest tradition.

And for dessert, Kaiserschmarrn paired with Vidal Ice Wine VQA
Harvest Festival – Sunday, October 17th
For us, it’s all about the grape harvest this time of year. At it’s height in mid-October, harvest is taking place across our region on many farms. Apples, squash and wheat to name a few. Enjoying bountiful, local flavours is a perfect way to finish off a day of apple picking or hiking your local trails. A simple bowl style meal or something created in the slow cooker are our favourites.
