Posted on: August 11th, 2015 by 89and52 No Comments

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The third annual Vine & Dine Gala, hosted by the Surry Wineries, takes place this Saturday at BB&T Ballpark in downtown
Winston-Salem.

The event will be held indoors at the ballpark’s club level, providing an elegant, climate-controlled space. Admission includes dinner, tastings from 11 Yadkin Valley wineries, and dancing to live music provided by Karon Click & The Hot Licks.

Participating wineries are: Adagio, Brushy Mountain, Carolina Heritage, Elkin Creek, Grassy Creek, Herrera, Olde Mill, Round Peak, Skull Camp, Slightly Askew and Stony Knoll.

“A special thing about the Yadkin Valley is its variety of wines,” says event organizer Louis Jeroslow, winemaker at Elkin Creek Vineyard. “I think people will really enjoy the evening and be pleasantly surprised with the wines they discover.”

Legends Hospitality at BB&T Ballpark will provide the small-plate menu, while Karon Click & The Hot Licks will perform an eclectic lineup of jump swing, upbeat blues and cool jazz. Dancing is encouraged.

The event runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and four raffles will take place hourly. The first three prizes are passports for complimentary tastings at all participating wineries. The final prize is an “instant Yadkin Valley wine cellar,” a selection of wines from the 11 vineyards at the gala.

Tickets prices for this special event are $65 per person or $120 per couple. Tickets are available online at: www.SurryWineries.com.
