Come enjoy some wine & live music by the best of our local songwriting talent! Kris Ferris hosts this performance melange, with FOUR singer/songwriters performing his or her songs in the round. They will also take you behind the scenes and learn what inspires their compositions, the stories behind the songs and the process of song writing through each songwriter’s eyes and experience. It is an interactive event and audience participation is encouraged (but please be respectful and don’t converse with your neighbor while the artists are speaking or singing).
Also note: If this is your first time visiting and you would like to do a tasting before the event, we suggest you come at least 30-45 minutes before to allow for a relaxed tasting experience. Tastings are conducted in our Tasting Room. You will be served there and when the door opens for the Songwriter Performance, you will then be seated in the Barrel Room. Tasting Fee is $10.00 for 7 wines and a signature wine glass.
