Answer: Why, Best Vineyards, of course!
Up for a little harness racing? Join us at the Harrison Co. Fall Harness Racing Meet on Sat., Sept. 27 from 11-4pm at the Harrison Country Fairgrounds. This event is free to the public but the wine tasting portion will be $10. Wine tasting is from 12-4pm and includes a commemorative tasting glass for the first 200 attendees. There will also be a large selection of craft, food and antique booths to browse.
If Harness Racing isn’t your thing, maybe a food and wine fundraiser is. We’ll be at the 8th Annual Sips, Samples and Songs fundraiser for Anderson Woods on the RiverWalk (near the Schaefer Hog Barn) in Jasper, IN from 2-6pm. Guests will enjoy live music, wine tasting from area wineries, delicious food samples from local restaurants, and a silent auction. All the money (100%) raised directly benefits Anderson Woods and their summer camp program for children and adults with physical and mental disabilities. Please join us in supporting this great cause.
Or maybe you just want to while away a lazy Saturday afternoon sipping delicious wine (or maybe an ice cold slushie) and listening to some groovy hits from the 50′s, 60′s, 70′s and 80′s? Then we have the perfect local band for you. Join us a the winery from 4-8pm as The Salty Dawgs set up in the gazebo for an afternoon of great oldies.
