cDeer Run Winery has celebrated the onset of the Christmas Holiday for many years now with the beloved food and wine pairing event known as Candlelight Nights. It takes place every Thursday in December before Christmas and gives folks a chance to visit with friends close to the Holidays, sample delicious food and wines and shop for unique gift items. The event takes place in the evening with the lights turned down low and candlelight taking its place. The food and wine pairings are thoughtfully carried out and provide guests the chance to sample pairings which they can incorporate into their own Holiday meals.
