VISIT 19 WINERIES FOR ONE BOOT STOMPIN’ FRINGE FLAPPIN’ EVENT WEEKEND

Rounding up all wine loving, wander seeking, country enthusiasts to our inaugural Boots ‘n Benchlands Weekend running June 22 & 23, 2024. This casual event at 19 participating wineries will pair award winning VQA wines with local cuisine with a country flair with activities that will remind you of good down-home country fun. Lots of live music will keep your toes tapping.

While there is no cost to attend the event, participating wineries will each have an “a la carte menu” of wine, foods, and entertainment. You and your fringe-shirt loving, boot stomp’n, cowboy hat adorning mates are going to have a blast.
