There are luxurious dinners with wine and courses of gourmet cannabis-infused delicacies, ‘wine and weed’ events that feature pairings of wine with varying cannabis products, and even events serving cannabis-infused wine. As these events continue to pop up, many vineyards and wineries are considering getting in on this aspect of the green rush.
