Art & Wine Walk Passport
What could be better than an afternoon of wine tastings and art? Join the guided tour of the SouthSide’s Urban Arts Trail with Manager, Missy Hartney, October 10th from 1pm – 3pm. Learn the story behind each piece, while stopping along the way at select retailers and restaurants for wine and conservation. Each location will be offering a variety of Franklin Hill wines, as well as specials and sales for shoppers! Tickets can be purchased below!
There are 5 wine stops, with each location serving a different kind of wine. The walk is filled with a variety of red and white wines with some specialty selections like rose, sparkling, and port. While enjoying wine samples at each participating location, participants keep track of the locations they visit on their Art & Wine Walk passports and enjoy sales/discounts along the way.
Featured wines include:
- Trio – A delicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chambourcin. This perfectly blended red is double oaked offering notes of vanilla, pairing well with campfires and s’mores!
- Catawba – The tartness of the catawba grapes are balanced with the sweetness of concord in this Rose blend. Serve nice and chilly in your favorite wine glass!
- White Jade – A lightly oaked Chardonnay style white wine. Perfect with white meats or a sunny afternoon
- Evanswood – Looking for a wine to hold up to a hearty stew with a light black pepper finish? Look no further. Evanswood is a red blend of Noiret and Merlot.
- Seyval Blanc – A dry, citrus forward white wine
Participants can turn in their passports at the end of the tour to be entered in a drawing to win a gift card to a SouthSide shop of their choice from the tour.
