About this event

Please join Joe Wilkins, Kristin Berger and the Remy Wines team for a night of discovery in the Three Wives Vineyard! Joe and Kristin will each read from their critically acclaimed poetry collections out on the porch of our farmhouse tasting room. Afterward, we will have some time for further inquiry into why we write poetry and why storytelling is an unrelenting part of being human.

Remy Wines has supported the creative arts since Remy first opened the doors in 2006. This event is a furthering of that vision. Please bring your favorite lawn chair and snacks to enjoy at our beautiful vineyard. Each ticket includes your first glass of wine. Kids and dogs (on a leash) welcome. We can’t wait to see you!
