Fruit of the vine to take pride of place in festival

April 30, 2017 by  

This spring, the Winston-Salem area will be playing host to an event that celebrates North Carolina’s winemaking industry and all it has to offer.

During the annual North Carolina Wine Festival, the public will have an opportunity to sample the range of wines produced in the state, and then they can purchase a glass, bottle, or even a full case of their favorites. In addition to the beverages, there will be live musical performances held throughout the afternoon, as well as an assortment of dishes created by local chefs, and crafts produced by creators from across North Carolina.

Two not-for-profit organizations will benefit from the event: a portion of the monies raised will be donated to the Winston-Salem Jaycees, as well as Cancer Services. The festival will take place rain or shine, and those who plan on attending are reminded to pack a small lawn chair or blanket, but to leave their pets, outside food, beverages and tents at home. Parking is included in the admission price, and all ticketholders will receive a commemorative glass. A professional printer will be able to provide custom drinkware such as this.

The festival will be held on May 27 in Clemmon’s Tanglewood Park. Anyone who would like to purchase tickets, or find out more about the event or the charities it will support, should visit its website.
