At SangriaFest, attendees can sample 10 different sangrias all made with light and refreshing wines imported by South Italy Imports from family-owned vineyards throughout Italy. This year’s event will feature new crowd pleasers like “Sucker Punch”- with Primitivo red wine with lime juice, rum and fruit– and “Zen,” featuring Chardonnay white wine with peaches, apricots, pomegranate juice and brandy. The event will have two sampling sessions: The first takes place from 1-4 p.m., with a limited access VIP experience from noon-1 p.m. (VIP Access Ticket required), while the second runs from 6-9 p.m., with a VIP experience from 5-6 p.m.
Guests can enjoy fun and games during the event with Bocce courts, beanbags and quoits. There will also be live music by Tioga, the Billy Bauer Band and Flowers for Taco, in addition to food trucks offering great eats, perfect for personal food and wine parings.
Proceeds from SangriaFest support the nonprofit ArtsQuest’s free music, arts and education programming for the region.
