Our annual ‘Soirée’ is a delightful summer evening of delicious food, fine wine and engaging conversation, all set in the midst of the Kingston House Lavender Farm!

After hors d’oeuvres and a lavender sparkling cocktail, we move to the heart of our fragrant lavender field for a three-course farm-to-table feast with wine pairings set in the midst of 1,000 blooming lavender plants.

As the sun sets, each guest will receive a special gift from the Kingston House line of lavender home and personal care products.

...until the 2019 Kingston Lavender Festival!
