June Wine Dinner with Lumos Wine Company

On Saturday, June 23, we hosted our second-of-the-season wine dinner featuring Lumos Wine Company. The night was a great success, and our guests left very full and very happy.

Our next wine dinner is scheduled for August 25 featuring Spindrift Cellars. We won’t begin taking reservations until August 1, but please be aware that reservations fill up very quickly (in two days or less).

PK McCoy and Dai Crisp own and operate Lumos Wine Company, and they were on hand to pour their own libations at the wine dinner.

Before dinner, farm co-owner, John Eveland, led a truck tour around the fields.

John’s favorite part of the tour (perhaps his favorite part of the farm) is the compost program.
