Join Thistle Meadow Winery for its 20th Annual Wine Festival, scheduled for Sunday, October 7 from 12-5 pm at the winery in Laurel Springs, NC – in the heart of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Enjoy tastings from different NC wineries, live music, food and craft vendors, and more for your $10 admission, which includes a 16 oz. souvenir wine glass to take home.
The occasion will also mark the release of this year’s batch of Sleepy Hollow Red, a spiced (mulled) red wine that’s served hot and will keep you warm and festive during the upcoming Fall and holiday season.
Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the day. Well-behaved dogs are welcome to join us at the grand wine tasting party which takes place in the beautiful meadows in front of the winery.
We’re just 2 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, so dovetail a trip to see the autumn colors while you’re on the mountaintop!
