Wine, bierocks, strudel and polka! Oh, my!
Join us for some great German food, wine and live music next to an honest to god vineyard. Admission is $5. Wine is purchased by the bottle in the tasting room (will be open for tasting of course). Traditional bratwurst, fresh strudel, german potato salad and the always amazing bierocks will be sold by "Dan the bierock man", Dan Hines a la carte.
The music starts at 1230p and goes till 430p, while the food and wine partaking starts at 12pm and goes till 4p. There will be a German costume contest at 3pm to crown the King and Queen of the Oktoberfest. The strudel goes fairly fast, so if you get there and they have it, pick some up before it is gone.
Oktoberfest was originally a wedding celebration and later included the celebration of German Unity Day. While it is known as a festival with lots of food and beer, this particular event will be food and wine as they are a winery and do not have a license to sell beer.
Oktoberfest at Holyfield Vineyard & Winery is a annual affair for me. It isn't that I'm much of a wino(sp?) as most who know me know vodka & soda is my preferred libation, but I go for the food. And the wine. And the atmosphere. So even if you don't like wine, if you enjoy a nice afternoon in the country (of sorts) and good German food, this is the place to be. If you do like wine, you shouldn't have even had to read this far.
