Wine, Cheese and Art Fair, Quilt Show coming

Area residents and out of town guests will have lots of activities to enjoy in Daviess County today and Saturday. The sixth Annual Daviess County Wine, Art and Cheese Festival will be held Friday evening beginning at 5 p.m. and the Amish Quilt Auction, now in its 26th year, will start at 8 a.m. on Saturday.

“The wine and art festival was created six years ago as a sister festival to the Amish Quilt Auction that is taking place at the Simon J. Graber Building on the Odon-Cannelburg Road on Saturday,” said Samantha Bobbitt, Daviess County Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau Director. “The idea was to have something the night before the auction for tourists who were coming into our community to buy quilts and crafts at the popular event. Both are scheduled each year on the Labor Day weekend.”

This year’s Wine, Art and Cheese Festival, which is sponsored by German American Bank, will feature five Indiana wineries that will be set up at Second and Main streets. Connoisseurs can purchase eight sample wine tastings for $10 and will also be given a Daviess County wine glass.

Additional wine glasses can be purchased for $2 each. “Bring your money and purchase full bottles or cases from the wineries at their booths,” said Bobbitt.

Windy Knoll from Vincennes, Cedar Creek from Martinsville with an additional location in Nashville, Monkey Hollow from St. Meinrad, Pepper’s Ridge from Rockport and Madison County from Pendleton will all be sampling their wines.

Windy Knoll, Cedar Creek and Monkey Hollow have participated in the festival in years past. Pepper’s Ridge is a new winery preparing to celebrate its first year of business and Madison County will be preparing wine-a-ritas, a frozen wine drink.

Bobbitt said that two food vendors will also be on hand for the event that will last until 9 p.m. Turkey strips, hot dogs, tenderloins, and other festival foods will be available for purchase. Water will also be available.
