Wine & Words - At Word on the Street and Bishop's Cellar, there's nothing like enjoying a good book with a fantastic glass of wine. But have you ever considered how to pair your wine with your literature for a well-balanced and harmonious experience?
Well, this has certainly crossed our minds - so during the month of April, Bishop's Cellar will feature wine pairings with books by local authors! Come by Bishop's Cellar to purchase a paired wine any time during the month of April, and part of the proceeds will help Word on the Street continue to support local authors at the annual festival in September.
On Thursday, April 24th 6pm-8pm four celebrated local authors and poets will read selections while guests enjoy the wines that were carefully selected to match the readings. Tickets are $30 and include wine and snacks. Space is limited, so visit eventbrite to purchase tickets today!
For your chance to win 2 complimentary tickets to Wine & Words, all five books by participating authors, and a bottle of wine from Bishop's Cellar, come up with your own wine and book pairing and enter our contest!!
