The festival's inaugural year will feature signature events like the "Big Sky's Mountain Village Stroll," where you mingle and taste with Master Sommeliers, Culinary Professionals, and the representatives from more than 20 wineries from around the world. In typical ‘Live Big' Style we will be offering adventure theme style tasting luncheons with names like "Zip to Zins " and "Taste at the Top".
