2018 - An Anniversary Year of Celebration!
We will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Buttonwood Farm, the 35th anniversary of the planting of the vineyard and a tribute to Betty, as 2018 would be her 100th birthday. Stay tuned for details as they unfold!
Vineyard Walk & Scavenger Hunt
Sunday, April 22nd
Join in the excitement of the beginnings of the 2018 vintage with a trek around our beautiful, sustainably farmed vineyard. Our winemaker, Karen, will lead the walk which will include her annual, wacky scavenger hunt. You'll be on the lookout for natural elements and who knows what else on the scavenger list, with fabulous prizes to be awarded! The walk includes a few hills and vales and takes about an hour (we won't make you walk!), with a few "wine stops" along the way. We'll end up at our vineyard pond to be rewarded with a seasonal brunch and paired wines under the shade of the Cottonwood trees.
Saturday, May 19th
2018 is time for our biennial, Louisiana-style Crawfish Boil. Come out to the vineyard and devour some little mud-bugs and other grub, dance to tunes from the Zydeco Zippers, drink some delicious Buttonwood wine, and have the time of your life! We'll have two traditional boils (spicy crawfish boiled with potatoes, garlic and corn on the cob) and french bread. While we boil the second batch, shake a leg with the Zydeco Zippers and sip some wine, y'all! The day will conclude with grilled Louisiana-style sausages, salad and the Buttonwood cookie tradition to finish! Laissez les bon temps rouler!
Tickets will be available to our Imbibers Club members in late February. If the event has not sold out, tickets to the general public will be available in April.
