First, I want to say hello to all of the many fantastic people we have met at festivals so far this year. We were pretty busy right out of the gate in 2012, but things are slowing down a little bit as spring arrives and our efforts turn to the grape-growing instead of the (much loved) grape-consuming. But that’s not to say we won’t be out there meeting, greeting, and pouring! Here are the two events we have scheduled for the month of April:
Friday, April 6th – We will be pouring our wine for the “Our Common Landscape” opening, a First Friday event at the WVTF and Radio IQ Studio Gallery at 216 West Water St, in Charlottesville, from 5-7. I’ve never poured at a First Friday, but I’ve attended plenty, and they’re a blast. And in addition to seeing many of you there, personally, I’m looking forward to hearing our local DJs say who’s providing wine for the event on air all afternoon with a straight face. Should make for great radio!
Saturday, April 28th – The Fork & Cork festival in Blacksburg. We had fun at the Fork and Cork last year, but didn’t quite anticipate how large the crowd was going to be. This year we’ll be back with even more of our fine Well Hung pourers in tow, so let’s hope for short lines and long tastings. The Fork and Cork is great though, because even when you’re not tasting, something incredible to nibble on is close at hand.
That’s all we have lined up for April so far. Check back though- we have a lot of festivals and events as we get closer to summer, and if anything pops up on short notice, we’ll post it here. And on Facebook. And Twitter.
