“Mine, Wine & Dine”

Join us for a spectacular evening of fine wine … delicious farm-to-table dining … live music … and gold-mine history. You’ll wine and dine in the exact places where the influential Bourn Family entertained their friends and business associates in the early 1900s. Here’s where deals were sealed, and our local prosperity thrived. Here’s where you’ll enjoy a magical evening, from start to finish!
