Utah doesn’t have dozens of vineyards and wineries, but we have lots of local wine events. All summer, local restaurants and associations showcase great food and drink against the backdrop of the Wasatch Mountains. Salt Lake magazine has joined Utah’s food and wine fun with our annual Tastemakers event May 17–18.

For $30, stroll and taste food from the likes of Squatters, Bambara and Naked Fish. For more info, call 801-485-5100 or visit saltlakemagazine.com. Enjoy dinner and drinks with hundreds of other diners at Savor the Summit’s grand table, set in the middle of Park City’s Main Street. (June 23, savorthesummit.com). 

Taste wine, attend a cooking class or sip your way down Main Street during the Park City Food & Wine Classic (July 5–8, parkcityfoodandwineclassic.com). End your summer with bites from more than 40 of Utah’s top restaurants and sampling of wine and local beer at Taste of the Wasatch, Solitude Mountain Resort (Aug. 5, tasteofthewasatch.org).
