Wisteria's Music Under the Arbor

On Saturdays during the summer, our friends at Wisteria host a little outdoor concert with local musicians out behind the tasting room.  There's plenty of space to pull up a chair and enjoy a glass of wine while listening to the local talent, which was the band Eklektix, last weekend.  I've posted on it quite a few times in the past and will probably do so again, but Mousa and Sue have created a wonderful place there at the farm, and it's a perfect venue for an event like this one.

Mary and I joined neighbor Dan (after the hops drying and Beaver Run Flat Tale IPA product sampling) for the evening, since this was a band that is comprised of some of Dan's coworkers - they knew quite a few folks in the crowd, as a matter of fact.  We were joined by other friends when we got there - planned and unplanned, so it was an evening of pleasant surprises.

Some highlights were the sparkling Traminette, a new vintage this year that is perfect for the summer, a walk through the farm back to Hawksbill Creek, and then the music, which ended up getting a few people up to dance.  After the little party there, a bunch of us went back over to Hawksbill Cabin for some pizza and more wine - the evening had cooled and it was a welcome break for the heat that had been building all week.

  • July 23 – Music Under the Arbor from 5 - 7 p.m. – FrikNFrak
