Celebration of Syrah: McMenamins 15th Annual Event
For fifteen years, Celebration of Syrah has been the largest gathering of Syrahs in the U.S., bringing upwards of 100 bold inky-colored red wines together from Australia, France and the Pacific Northwest in one place – Edgefield.
The event attracts wine connoisseurs, daytrippers and beer drinkers alike to pay tribute to Syrah within the property’s sprawling grounds that include 74 acres of vineyards, organic gardens, restaurants, pubs, a spa and golf course. Special overnight lodging packages are available starting at $225 per couple.
