Get Outside and Taste Some Oklahoma Wines Oct 24

Two fun events this weekend offer opportunities to taste some Oklahoma wines.

One of my favorite wine events from Summer has been moved to October. The Drumright winefest is this Saturday. Since Nuyaka Creek Winery usually pours at this event, I am a bit biased. However, I have been a fan of Tulsa's guitar legend Mark Bruner for decades!

For the 7th year, Drumright is hosting their Annual Wine Festival from Noon untill 6pm at Whitlock Park in Drumright. This is one of the largest and BEST wine festivals in Oklahoma and a NOT TO BE MISSED event.

This year the festival will feature SIX wineries offering samples and wine for sale, food vendors (GOOD food) and several artists scattered throughout the park.

And, one of Tulsa's hottest and best known musical duos, Mark Bruner and Shelby Eicher, will be performing. And not just on stage -- but you have to come to the Festival to see what they have in store!

Tidal School Winery will have a booth offering samples of their award winning wines and new releases. There is a Trolley giving rides back and forth to the winery all afternoon.

Entry fees at Whitlock Park are $12 for Tasters and $5 for non tasters.

Enjoy local art, music and wines at the Fourth Annual Art Walk in Downtown Eufaula! The Art Walk features some of Oklahoma's most talented artists and musicians, experience the shops of Downtown Eufaula, browse the numerous exhibits and visit the wine garden October 24, 2009. Enjoy the street dance and wine garden on the friday night before!

Sailing Horse Winery and Black Sheep Winery will have several wines available to sample so be sure to bring your friends!
