Well what a beautiful evening we had in Wilson, Arkansas at the Wilson Farms Wine Pairing Dinner! We had no idea that Wilson, AR existed until accepting an invite to this beautiful evening under the stars, and we must say, it is officially on our list of quick getaway vacations for this fall! In this post, I will share our experience with the monthly Wilson Farm Wine Pairing dinners, and will also review a few activities that we will be trying out in a future vacation to Wilson , AR.
Just a 55 minute drive outside of Memphis, the quaint country town of Wilson, AR has so much to offer! We enjoyed our first experience at WIlson Farm’s where they host several noteworthy events such as their wine tastings, mixology classes, farmers market, and wine dinner to name a few!
We began our evening at sunset in the Wilson Gardens Orchard where there were drinks, finger foods, and live acoustic entertainment. The h’orderves were so unique consisting of a prosciutto and pear recipe in a jar, squash and feta tartlets, a tasty apple and squash lollipop, and Prosecco. As the sun began to set, we made our way up to the outdoor dinner venue to enjoy a wine pairing and dinner under the stars.
The dinner menu was as equally unique and delicious as our orchard snacks, and I must say, chef sure did know how to pair these dishes beautifully with wine.
After dinner we enjoyed a little moonlight dance with the live band and headed on back to Memphis. We were so impressed with Wilson, AR that we are planning a little getaway to experience more of this quaint, little town.
I hope to visit the Wilson Tavern, shops in the square, farms market, a wine tasting and another Wilson Farm dinner on my next visit to Wilson! Wan’t to check out Wilson? Head on over to their instagram, @VisitWilson to get a feel for why we fell in love with this place!
