2018 Vino in the Valley!

Mark your calendars as this year’s Vino in the Valley Drive is set for Saturday, August 11!

Join us for a summer drive on Wisconsin’s great back roads. Enjoy some of the most beautiful hills, winding roads and valleys of the area. Our drive will begin in Prescott at the confluence of the St Croix and Mississippi rivers, ending at Vino in the Valley for dinner. We will have our first rest stop in Pepin with a second rest stop at the Eau Galle Cheese Factory near Durand. Browse the gift shop, sample the cheese, or grab an ice cream cone. Bring a cooler along if you wish to bring home some of Wisconsin’s finest cheeses. Upon arrival at Vino in the Valley, approximately 4 pm, we will line up our cars for a Porsche show for the patrons to enjoy. Vino in the Valley is a truly unique and beautiful venue offering outdoor dining with a great view and live music. Enjoy gourmet pizza and pasta dishes cooked outdoors in their wood-fired brick oven.

2018 Membership Socials ‘On Tap’

These meetings are fun; a time for new members to come, hear from the veterans about our events and activities, ask all those questions and meet other like-minded Porsche fanatics.

Pick one, pick all three!
