On Sunday afternoon, Nutwood Winery hosted its outdoor event, “Music in the Vineyard.” There were live music performances by Baylee Waller, Aaron Gibson, WINOS, and The Vegabonds, as well as several food and craft vendors. Guests also enjoyed wine slushies, beer, wine and non-alcoholic options.

According to Nutwood Winery co-owner Neil Liechty, his business started holding “Music in the Vineyard” events this year. This one was the third of the year.

“We just decided because of the popularity of it to do it in July, August, and September. So, it will be six Sundays a year … It will be the last Sunday of each month,” Liechty said during a previous interview.

Vendors and organizations at the event included Holloway’s Pork Skins, Sparkle’s Cookies, Butter’d Udder, Beacon Brewing Co, Smokin Mo’s Barbecue, Seafood Claws Market, Drive-By Tacos, Ressa’s Unique Boutique, Holcombe Hand Pours, Plunder, Mallory Agency, Kia of LaGrange, Bubble Lee Balloon Art, The Mind Clothing, and Pine Sap Pottery.

Sponsors for the event were Kia of LaGrange, Mallory Agency, South State Bank, and Rob Upchurch with RE/MAX, according to event co-organizer Amanda Sugermeyer.

According to Nutwood Winery co-owner Trish Liechty, the event ended somewhat early because of rain.

“I thought it was great. It was a lot of fun, it was a beautiful day, [we] had a great time, great vendors, great food,” she said.
