2. WHERE DOES VERITAS ILLUMINATED TAKE PLACE?

The Veritas Illuminated trail begins steps away from the Veritas Winery tasting room. Signage will guide you to our staff for check-in at the Gazebo adjacent to the brick patio. The illuminated walking trail winds up from the Tasting Room through the vines by the parking lot. Then, cross a bridge and head back into the woods for a magical immersive experience. Leave the woods and cross yet another bridge leading down long rows of twinkling vines. Twisting back toward the Tasting Room, take in illuminated installations and sparkling stars.
