From: Friends, The Newsletter of the Friends of McConnell Springs (Volume 22, Issue 1- Spring 2016)
Hopefully the long winter is behind us and we can all look for a great stay-cation with our friends “riding” the Bluegrass. The 9th Annual Wine Barrel Tasting for the Springs fundraiser is sponsored by The Friends of McConnell Springs and 16 local wineries in the Bluegrass, all within one hour drive from Lexington. The event will take place on Saturday, March 26, 2016 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the participating wineries. Celebrate the new tasting room from Prodigy Winery at the vineyard about 2 miles south of their previous tasting room. For those who are new to the scene, a short explanation: Participants go to any of the participating wineries to sample a barrel tasting of wine ready for bottling. You choose your own starting point. For a $20/person fee, one receives a commemorative glass and entrance to the barrel tasting. Proceeds go to The Friends of McConnell Springs for educational purposes and preservation and restoration of the park. For more information and directions to the wineries check out our website at www.mcconnellsprings.org, visit our Facebook page, or call 859.327.9800. We look forward to seeing you soon!!
