Cider, Wine & Dine Weekend
April 15 - April 18varies
The Cider, Wine & Dine Weekend features Henderson County wineries and cideries partnering together to create a signature weekend surrounded by all things cider, wine and food! It is an action-packed weekend filled with artisan hard cider, award-winning wines, a variety of food, educational programs, live music, facility tours and more. The many separate events take place at multiple venues throughout the county all weekend long!
Henderson County’s rich history in agriculture and wonderful climate makes the area ideal for the growing of a variety of apples and grapes. Henderson County is home to North Carolina’s newest wine country, the Crest of the Blue Ridge American Viticulture Area. The wineries produce classic wines from European vinifera grapes and French-American hybrid grapes, as well as sweeter wines crafted from grapes native to North Carolina.
The Cider, Wine & Dine Weekend will allow people to spread out and follow CDC and state-mandated guidelines for cleaning, social distancing and limiting crowd size.
Some events require advance ticket purchase.
