continued “We want people to know we’re here, and that they can buy locally grown products from us,” Frey said.
Richard Lamoy, owner of Hid-In-Pines Vineyard, has been making wine for 10 years, and is wrapping up his third season of selling the product.
He will offer 10 varieties of wine — five white and five red — ranging from sweet to dry.
“We make 100 percent of our wine from locally grown, cold climate grapes,” Lamoy said. “The cold climate hybrids were specifically bred to withstand the colder weather of our region.”
But the event isn’t just about the grapes, or even the individual wineries that are participating.
“We are all trying to work together to promote the region,” Lamoy said. “It gives people something to go to — it’s a destination event for people to do for a day.”
Tickets for the holiday wine tour cost $10 and can be purchased from any one of the businesses on the tour either before or during the event, which runs from noon - 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15.
Each business will hand out a special wine glass charm to commemorate the event.
Every charm will be unique to the vendor handing it out, and can be placed around the stem of a wine glass.
