Pre-Summit Events

Each year, we like to offer a series of pre-summit events. Since many attendees haven’t been to the Hendersonville Area, we are offering 2 days of Pre-Summit events.

Saturday 7/15 Wine Tour

The Saturday Wine Tour will start at Southern Williams Vineyard. We will enjoy a hike around the vineyard and a progressive tasting experience. After, we will enjoy a visit to Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards and Appalachian Ridge Artesian Cider. There will be a food truck for lunch at Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards (lunch is not included in ticket price).

The tour will leave the host hotel by 10AM.

Sunday 7/16 Wine Tour and Dinner

The Sunday wine tour will include stops at three vineyards.

We will begin with brunch and tour at Marked Tree Vineyards. We will move to Stone Ashe Vineyards for a relaxing tasting. We will finish the day at Point Lookout Vineyards with an extended tasting and dinner.
