Yosemite Dispatch
Celebrating 30 Years of Superior Wine Making
height=603 Vintner's Holidays
While Yosemite's autumn beauty may be common knowledge, some people may not know how we really kick off the fall and holiday seasons around here. The true standard bearer of our picturesque seasonal shift is Vintners' Holidays, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

Perhaps the country's most acclaimed wine event, Vintners' Holidays takes place each November and December at The Ahwahnee in Yosemite National Park. This series of eight intimate sessions provides personal access to winemakers, their latest offerings and gourmet cuisine paired with session wines. All while you explore Yosemite in its fall splendor. Two- and three-night lodging packages are available at The Ahwahnee and Yosemite Lodge at the Falls. To start filling your glass, visit for more information.

Two other unforgettable holiday events here at Yosemite include The Bracebridge Dinner and Chefs' Holidays. 

Around mid-December for over 80 years, the grand Dining Room at The Ahwahnee transforms into an elaborate 17th-century Renaissance hall for the legendary Bracebridge Dinner. What ensues is a series of epic Christmas dinner pageants featuring a professional cast of characters and a festive seven-course feast. Visit for more info. 

What Vintners' Holidays is to wine, Chefs' Holidays is to food. Attendees meet famous chefs firsthand, sharpen up on cooking techniques and more. For a full list of this year's celebrity chefs and info about lodging packages, visit

It's a settled fact. Yosemite is a hiker's paradise. From easy to strenuous, picturesque to daunting. Whatever style of hiking one wishes for, Yosemite delivers. The fall season provides unique opportunities to explore forests of vibrant autumn leaves, to follow trodden paths through light snow and to reach heights meant for the bravest and most persistent adventurers. Hitting the trails is also easier than ever with a variety of lodging packages crafted especially for the fall season
