Cider, Wine & Dine Weekend @ Hendersonville Wineries & Cideries Tickets
Apr 25 @ 11:00 am – Apr 28 @ 10:30 am
Cider, Wine & Dine Weekend @ Hendersonville Wineries & Cideries

Hendersonville hosts Cider, Wine & Dine Weekend to celebrate apple blossom season and the start of a new crop. More than 40 events throughout the weekend allow guests to tour cideries, meet winemakers, listen to live music, and indulge in special dinners at wineries and tasting rooms. After a successful first year, this second annual event adds an extra day with a ticketed kickoff gala.

The opening gala on Thursday, April 25, provides a preview of the weekend. Participating venues serve food and drink samples, and tickets will be available for upcoming events. Music and dancing set a festive tone. The gala takes place at the stately Horse Shoe Farm.

Cider, Wine & Dine Weekend allows visitors to explore the diversity found at Hendersonville’s cideries and wineries. Ciders vary from a dry European-style with Champagne-like bubbles to a slightly sweet easy-drinking beverage reminiscent of biting into an apple. And wines are as bold as an inky-dark merlot and as light and crisp as a dry rosé.

Participating venues include: Appalachian Ridge Artisan Cider, Bold Rock Hard Cider, Burntshirt Vineyards Chimney Rock, Burntshirt Vineyards Hendersonville, Point Lookout Vineyards & World’s Edge Meadery, Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards, Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards Flat Rock, and Wine Sage & Gourmet.

Visit the website for a full list of events.
