Farm Tour Ep. 3 - Vicario Micro-Distillery and Farm in Greer, SC
Topsoil Visits Vicario Micro-Distillery and Farm
As we prepare for our monthly plant based supper club, the team at Topsoil Restaurant took a visit to Vicario Micro-Distillery and Farm in Greer, SC (and Italy). We learned about the many herbs and plants they grow on their farm that they use in their products. Some we were not familiar with. We toured the distillery and then got to taste the amazing liqueurs, spirits, wine and olive oil they create.

We look forward to working with these amazing flavors, weaving them into a 5 course plant based dinner on March 9th at Topsoil Restaurant in Travelers Rest, SC. Chef Adam Cooke and his team are excited to feature Vicario Micro-Distillery and Farm at this month's Supper Club! Link to tickets at https://www.topsoilrestaurant.com/events
