What’s New This Year?


Melissa McAvoy, owner of Swirlery Wine Bar, will be taking over Dr. Dare’s Lab to share her experience as an advanced sommelier! Enjoy a free-flowing environment where you’ll learn about the elements that make wine unique, including terroir, tannins, varietals and more.


In addition to our selection of reds, whites and rosés, we’ll also be serving cocktails this year! Plus, we’ll have non-alcoholic options for our designated drivers and those who elect not to drink.
