  • Details

    This exceptional outdoor dining experience, set in the wild beauty of the 1,000-acre Winterthur estate, will be hosted by garden designer and lifestyle expert P. Allen Smith of PBS’s Garden Home Show. You’ll dine on a locally inspired menu and sip specialty cocktails at a hand-crafted communal table made from the enormous trees felled at Winterthur this past year, adorned with floral arrangements inspired by the meadows and gardens. During this immersive outdoor dining event, you’ll find yourself surrounded by the vast Winterthur vista in a surprise location. You could dine in a field under the setting sun or on a hilltop overlooking ponds and meadows or next to towering trees and blooming fall flowers—you won’t know the secret location until you arrive!

    Not only will you enjoy an amazing meal in a bucolic setting, but by dining under the stars with us, you will help to preserve the beauty of this landscape. The proceeds from the Table at Winterthur will support the preservation of Winterthur’s vast land and fund initiatives that will contribute to the sustainability of the estate.

    Join us to break bread, surround yourself in natural beauty, and mingle with our local community as we work to preserve 1,000 acres of the Brandywine Valley, untouched by time, for future generations.

    Upgrade your reservation to include a pre-dinner cocktail celebration and special presentation of the 2021 Henry Francis du Pont Award honoring Judy and John Herdeg.

    "I sincerely hope…that the gardens and grounds will of themselves be a country place museum where visitors may enjoy as I have, not only the flowers, trees and shrubs, but also the sunlit meadows, shady wood paths, and the peace and great calm of a country place which has been loved and taken care of for three generations."
    – Henry Francis du Pont (1880–1969)
