The Merlot Release Party will be, by far, our biggest event yet! We will not only debut our Reserve Merlot and Red Raspberry wines, but we will also allow guests to enjoy tastes of our various varieties of wine, while live music by All Jacked Up and Ryan Jefferies decorate the air alongside our 2-acre natural spring pond.
Because we anticipate more than 1,000 people, we strongly encourage you to arrive early to park, setup your spot on the lawn, and head up to the tasting room to taste our hand-crafted win
es before the music begins. The tasting room will open at 11:00 am, and move to the Tasting Room porch at 3:30 pm with light music provided by Ryan Jefferys for you to enjoy while tasting prior to the shows!
