Culinary Tours of the Pines is a provider of small group walking culinary tasting tours. The Classic Pinehurst Tour operates on Tuesdays and Fridays from 1:45 PM - 4:00 PM. Small plate signature dishes are provided at each culinary stop along with a craft beer tasting that complements each dish. In addition to the food tasting stops a wine tasting will be held in the downtown wine Shop. As participants walk from location to location in the Village they will receive information regarding the history of Pinehurst, the various establishments visited, and information about the food being tasted at the various stops. The Sweet and Savory Brunch Tour operates on Thursday mornings. Start your morning at Lady Bedford’s Tea Parlour with a mid-morning brunch of a savory quiche and the Parlour’s famous scones. Two teas will be sampled. After brunch, you will be treated to an historic walking tour of the Village which will include a visit to the Tufts Archives, home to the largest collection of memorabilia from both the Tufts and the Donald Ross families. The morning continues with a stop at the Pinehurst Olive Oil Company and includes the tasting of both savory olive oils and sweet balsamic vinegars. A special end sweet treat will await you at Cameron and Company. Your tour will end shortly after noon.

The Classic Pinehurst Tour is $55 and the Sweet and Savory Brunch Tour is $40. Well worth the price.
