You will not want to be anywhere else on August 26th, as the release of Winemaker L. Paul Vezzetti’s famous Merlot and Brewmaster Ryan DeLutis’s super Flash Gourd’n Pumpkin Beer take center stage as part of the 5th Annual Release Day. But wait…there’s more!


This year’s release party features and all day music festival headlined by national recording artists Spin Doctors, Gin Blossoms & Blues Traveler! This festival will feature a food truck mash-up, a tailgating competition, beverage stations throughout the property, and so much more.


This party is going to be legendary and full of fun memories. Gather your friends and family, pack your blankets and chairs, and lets rock out to the songs everybody knows during THE wine & beer event of the year in Central Pennsylvania!


Event F.A.Q.


What happens if it rains? This event is a rain or shine event.


 Are tickets available at the door? If the event does not sell out, tickets at the door will be $35 per-person.


What kind of food and beverages are available? Can I bring my own? We have great food trucks coming, as well as our award-wining wines, ciders, and beers! You are allowed to bring your own food, but we do not permit any outside beverages.



Do we need to bring our own chairs/blankets/etc? Unless you purchase a seat in Merlot Mike’s VIP Tent, yes! We will be enjoying the day at the pond. Merlot Mike will be circulating and judging the best setup — and that whole group will receive a Season Pass for next year’s Decked-Out Live! Concert Series. Unfortunately, no canopies or tents are permitted.



 Are minors or pets allowed? Due to the nature of this event, neither guests under 21 nor pets are permitted. Thank you for understanding.


 What time should I arrive? That’s completely up to you… but the best views tend to go quickly.


Outside items, bag check, and anything else I should know? We strongly recommend you dress to enjoy a day on our 40-acre farm. As the festival stage is down by our natural spring pond, and parking lot is in a field behind the pond, please wear appropriate and comfortable walking shoes. We will have a bag check inspection upon arrival, and as a reminder, outside beverages are not permitted. Finally, we do not permit weapons of any kind on the farm.


Tickets are Non-Refundable
