“This year’s Park City Wine Festival is designed with a passport state of mind,” says Park City Wine Festival Events Director Kristen Slater. “We want guests to feel like they’re transported to a beachside party in Portugal, then whisked away to the depths of South America green spaces, followed by a leisurely Italian lunch and back to Utah – without ever needing to take out your passport.”

Park City Wine Festival allows imbibers to sip, swirl, and savor wine from more than 100 international wineries from California to France at the Grand Tastings, while taking in breathtaking views of Park City’s fall beauty. Mix and mingle with winemakers and vintners, immerse yourself in the world of wine during expertly paired lunches and dinners throughout the weekend, add some adventure with a paired wine hike, and participate in events like Wine Is Blind, a new collective experience that reveals your favorite wine without preconceived notions. 

In addition to the seminars, there are also a number of signature events throughout the weekend including the Best of Fest on Oct. 6, featuring the gems of the Grand Tasting during an intimate, all-inclusive evening tasting. New to 2023 is Wine is Blind on Oct. 6. We’re putting your taste buds to the test at the Park City Wine Festival. During this late-night, blind wine tasting you’ll get to know mystery wines and vote for your favorite based on the flavor profile alone. The wines presented are all 90+ point rated and will be concealed in mystery bags. Wear your cocktail attire and get ready to fall in love with a new wine—all without seeing the bottle first. The weekend is anchored by the Grand Tastings on October 6 and 7. Enjoy wines from 100+ wineries, while taking in scenic mountain views, dancing to live music and snacking on delectable small bites. Explore everything from fruit-forward sauvignon blancs and pinots, to rich cabernets and zinfandels. In addition to an impressive, curated selection of  wine, the Grand Tasting has hand crafted cocktails and local beer. Tickets are all-inclusive and cover the cost of all drinks and snacks.
