upcoming wine trail events
Spring Wine and Cheese and Flights and Bites are postponed. It is very likely that Smokin’ Summer Kickoff (June 12-14) will also be postponed, given that the soonest our wineries could possibly reopen is the first day of that event. We are hoping to reschedule these events, but we need to await guidance on gatherings and events from the Governor, which we suspect will come as we get closer to our reopening date. In the meantime, all of our event ticket sales are on hold. Please refer to our Events Page for additional details (including information on refunds for those who have already purchased tickets).
