Grand "Bottle" Opening

Newest additions to the winery family. 
Bidders on first bottles.
We had a great celebration at the Winery.  The auction of the first wines of the Winery was amazing! We raised $1,100.  This money has been donated to the Hope Center (see picture below) which provides food and clothing to families in need.  Thanks to all of the bidders for their contribution to this worthy cause.  A special thanks to Robert and Diane Bullock for their Funnel Cakes and Continuous Potato Chip delights and their generous contribution to the Hope Center.  Thanks also to David Haddle of Up the Creek Winery (Burksville, Cumberland County) for his contribution. 

Over 300 folks visited the winery throughout the day.  Craft and art vendors offered interesting and quality items for sale.  We had great music and food.

Enjoy a few pictures of the day!
