12th ANNUAL “SHORELINE WINE FESTIVAL” AUGUST 11TH & 12TH
A Celebration Tasting Wine on the Connecticut Shoreline
July 10, 2018 – GUILFORD, CT, – The 12th Annual Shoreline Wine Festival is one month away on August 11 and 12, 2018. This is the 12-year anniversary for the Shoreline Wine Festival, bringing in thousands of visitors over the course of the weekend. The Shoreline Wine Festival will celebrate fine wines from Connecticut Wineries and Vineyards from all over the state. Pair this with some of the area’s finest foods, with the backdrop setting of a beautiful farm orchard and background sounds of tasteful music to put you in the mood. The festival is hosted & sponsored by Bishop’s Orchards Farm Market and Winery in Guilford, CT. This year’s festival has brought in over $30K in sponsorships with Bishop’s Orchards Winery, Clinton Crossing, Foxon Soda, Mosaic, Proforma, Miranda Creative, WFSB/CBS, Shore Publishing, Old Amsterdam, Outfront Media, and Becker’s Jewelers.
The Shoreline Wine Festival will feature Connecticut Vineyards and Wineries from around the state, all offering their fine wines that range from grape wines to fruit wines. One of the many benefits to the Shoreline Wine Festival for attendees is that all wine that is sampled by the vineyards at the Festival, are available for sale that weekend to take home with you. This is something that many festivals do not and cannot offer. This two day festival is a ticketed event that affords you the opportunity to taste the wines from all of the wineries, enjoy a tour of the Bishop’s Orchards Winery, live music and entertainment, and a chance to visit with local vendors and artisans. Food offered at the event is from our eclectic food truck line, at an additional charge. Food trucks will include tacos, steamed burgers, lobster rolls, BBQ, grilled cheese, mac n cheese, fresh squeezed lemonade, Italian cuisine and pizza.
Wineries participating in this year’s festival include Hopkins Vineyard, Jonathan Edwards Winery, Jones Family Farm Winery, Paradise Hills Vineyard, Sunset Meadow Vineyards, Taylor Brooke Winery and of course Bishop’s Orchards Winery. Drink the wines of Connecticut and listen to renowned band, The Ticket, and DJ services from Music in Motion, while taking in the scenery overlooking the apple orchards of Bishop’s Orchards.
