WineFest at St. Michaels 2013

I'm going on this trip with another group, and we have room for about 10 people.  Payment for bus and wine fest will be collected by check.  Please sign up, if you're interested. Cost is $90 for bus and ticket.  Make checks payable to Maureen Hannon and mail to me for delivery.

On April 27th the “WineFest at St. Michaels 2013” will be held throughout the beautiful town of St. Michaels. This festival of wine will feature over 300 wines which will all be available for tasting and purchase. Each pouring venue is owned and operated by one of the small businesses in St. Michaels who have teamed up with US (including Maryland wines) and International wine suppliers. Our beer pouring venue is homegrown, “Eastern Shore Brewing,” which will feature its own award-winning beers produced in St. Michaels. Visit “The Wines” page for all of the information on each venue and the wines offered. Fine wines of exceptional character and value will be offered again on the Patriot Cruise Boat and also in in the courtyard of the Old Brick Inn at the corner of Talbot and Mulberry Streets.

WineFest at St. Michaels is a very unique festival for wine buyers. Rather than all tastings located at one venue, WineFest at St. Michaels is a streetscape event, with wines tasted and available for purchase at many unique venues throughout the town of St. Michaels. There will also be many dining, shopping and lodging options all throughout the town. Come join us and experience the best that St. Michaels has to offer.

    Thanks Becky. I thought in your comment that Maureen had a wait list and I was going to give up my seat so someone on her list could attend.

    I am too! Live in Woodbridge I can drive ( take 3 ) or would welcome meeting another to carpool.
    Perhaps those of us on wait list might consider meeting in the same place and follow the bus in our own car pool?

    Deb,
    I gave your check to Maureen days ago, and I won't see her until next Monday. It is up to you to sell your seat. No refunds are offered for this trip.
    Sorry,

    Hi Becky, I just found out a friend from out of state is coming in that day. If you are able to give my spot to someone on Maureen's wait list or this wait list that would be fine with me. You can just have Maureen tear up my check. Just let me know if you are able to fill my spot. Thanks and so sorry for any extra work on your and Maureen's part.

    I have given Maureen checks for Deb, Doug and PK. she has a wait list for the bus, and has agreed to hold remaining seats until Wed, 3/27/13. At this point, the first 6 checks I receive will go on the bus...including 22 waiting.

    Becky I just put my check in the mail. You should have it Tuesday. Thanks for setting this up. Looking forward to it.

    FYI-if you want to ride the bus, you have to pay in advance otherwise Maureen will not hold your seat. $90 pays for your ticket, transportation, St. Michaels wine glass and tax receipt for the remaining amount (to American Cancer Society). When I add the names on Monday, I'm sure she only give a few days to pay for seats.

    Becky - Pls make my seat on the bus available to the next in line - I'm 'iffy' at this point; will drive/carpool if I'm able to make it. Thx.

    Here is the latest on the St. Michaels Trip bus. Bus leaves Lake Ridge Giant at 9:30 am and returns 7:00 pm. All proceeds to benefit the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. Cost is $90, which includes the bus trip and WineFest Ticket. A tax receipt will be given for the portion that is donation, I believe about $25. Checks are to be made to Maureen Hannon, and sent to me. I will let you know when sign up sheet comes out, and at that time you need to mail check to me ASAP to secure your seat. If this is too expensive, remove yourself from list and I will open up another event for all those that want to carpool or meet us there.

      Hi Frank, I haven't purchased my ticket yet, I will however, if you are interested in riding out together. I don't want to drive that far alone after wine tasting . You are the first to connect from this area re: ride share.

      February 8, 2013

    • Carole Tangney S.

      I'm going from Wdbg, but had signed up for the bus, & we're supposedly buying our tix on the bus. Looks like there'll be a few of us Wdbg-ites @ St. Michaels.

    FYI-I will post the details of the St. Michaels trip as soon as they are available. I am planning to obtain 10 seats on the bus that was reserved by another group. I do not plan to get another bus, just hitching along with this group. That is why the number of is limited to 10.
