If you love the mountains in the summer as much as I do then you might want to add Big Sky, Montana to your bucket list. This August my boyfriend Sean and I hopped in the car and took the 13 Hour drive from Telluride, Colorado to Big Sky. ( Follow us on Instagram @mountainmanandthediva ) It’s an epic drive and we enjoyed many pit stops along the way.
We were invited out for the Vine and Dine food and wine event. I had been counting the days until our departure. Spending a few days to re-charge in the mountains is the best thing I can think of.
I’ve been wanting to go to Big Sky for so long now and I jumped at the chance when we were invited to join in the festivities. We met so many great people and I really got to understand what this giant mountain is all about. It’s breathtaking in the summer and you can bet I’m gonna go back to ski in the winter.
Vine and Dine events were like taste expeditions….taking in stunning big mountain views with food and drink highlights. We tried local favorites and also so many tasty bites with an international flare.
There was a mixology seminar by the fabulous Death & Co. where we learned coveted new tips for our next cocktail party. They even hosted a speakeasy that was dark, mysterious and delicious.
You can choose from many events. There are seminars, receptions, dinners and even something called Pinot on the Peak, which was a favorite for many. At that event we took a tram to over 11,000 feet. The views were breathtaking! Saying “cheers” to each other and all our new friends with sparkling Pinot bubbly in hand was truly magical. Be sure to mark your calendar‘s for mid August… trust me you will be happy if you can make it to this spirited event at Big Sky!
