9th Annual "Shoreline Wine Festival" August 15 and 16
Posted on July 14th, 2015

We are one month away from the 9th Annual Shoreline Wine Festival, August 15 and 16, 2015. The Shoreline Wine Festival will celebrate fine wines from Connecticut Wineries and Vineyards from all over the state.  Pair this with some of the area’s finest foods, with the backdrop setting of a beautiful farm orchard and background sounds of tasteful music to put you in the mood.  This year’s festival will again be hosted by Bishop’s Orchards Farm Market and Winery in Guilford, CT.
The Shoreline Wine Festival will feature Connecticut Vineyards and Wineries from around the state, all offering their fine wines that range from grape wines to fruit wines.  There is something for everyone.  This two day festival is a ticketed event that affords you the opportunity to taste the wines from all of the wineries, enjoy a tour of the Bishop’s Orchards Winery, numerous wine seminars given by local wine experts, live music and entertainment, and a chance to visit with local vendors and artisans.  Food offered at the event is an additional charge. 
One of the many benefits to the Shoreline Wine Festival for attendees is that all wine that is sampled by the vineyards at the Festival, are available for sale that weekend to take home with you.  This is something that many festivals do not and cannot offer. 
Wineries participating in this years festival include Hopkins Vineyard, Sunset Meadow Vineyards, Jonathan Edwards Winery, Jones Winery, DiGrazia Vineyards, Paradise Hills Vineyard, Sharpe Hill Vineyard, and of course Bishop’s Orchards Winery.  Drink the wines of Connecticut while listening to renowned bands from around New England including Java Groove, Four Barrel Billy, and Guilford’s own Nick Fradiani Sr., while taking in the scenery overlooking the apple orchards of Bishop’s Orchards. 
Tickets for the festival are $30.00 for Adults, $60 for VIP, and $10.00 for Designated Driver Tickets. After August 8th, ticket prices for Adult tickets will go up to $35 and VIP to $70. Tickets are at a per person, per day rate, and they can be purchased online or at Bishop’s Orchards Farm Market. They will also be available at the door of the festival. The hours of the event are Saturday, Aug. 15, 12 pm – 7 pm and Sunday, Aug. 16, 12 pm – 6 pm.
