Wining and Dining are the name of the game in Natchez this August. Kiss summer farewell and usher in the new season as you sip and taste Southern cuisine and libations in this River City.

Slow down a little and sip on a glass of wine at The Burn Wine Tour, taking place throughout the month. The Burn is one of Natchez’s most significant purely Greek Revival structures and was the home of the John Walworth family for over a century, except for the three years it was used as a hospital for Union forces. Circa 1834, The Burn still houses the original dining table and china. During the tour, you can enjoy a glass of wine in the home’s terraced gardens, home to over 100 heirloom camellias and azaleas.

Book a tour of Charboneau Distillery, where Mississippi’s first legally distilled rum is produced.
