Description

Explore the autumn landscape, dazzling the eye with brilliant gold, orange, crimson, and russet foliage, and taste wines paired with crafted tapas on a walk to Chandler Farm. The du Ponts acquired Chandler Farm  in the last century, when the family purchased land next to Winterthur, at the time a private estate and home to herds of cattle and sheep. In 1958, Henry Francis du Pont designated the red-brick, Federal-style farmhouse as the residence for the museum’s director. When you arrive at Chandler Farm, wine will be available for purchase to sip and savor while you listen to music by The Midnighters.

Viognier
Seared scallop on frisée, crumbled goat cheese, toasted almonds, blood orange vinaigrette

Rosé

This is an outdoor walking event, with uneven terrain and no transportation, weather permitting. Rain date: October 17. Reservations required.  Event details subject to change.
