Classic songs from iconic British groups such as The Zombies, The Moody Blues, Dave Clark Five, the Rolling stones and Herman’s Hermits will be performed, followed by the American musical response and finally a salute to the band that defined the British invasion, the Beatles.

Wine tastings, hard cider, and fruit brandies as well as food, and soft drinks will be available all weekend at the winery. Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs, and blankets. Outside food and beverages are prohibited.
