Dear Oliver friends and fans! On Saturday August 21st, 2010 you can enjoy the unique opportunity to discover and explore our beautiful Creekbend Vineyard. Tickets for Part III of the Creekbend Experience are on sale now!
On June 9th, I had the opportunity to attend Part II of our Creekbend Experience Series, held at the winery. Guests were treated to goodies and tastings including the trio of wines made from the Chambourcin grapes that grow in our vineyard (Chambourcin, Chambourcin Rosé and Chambourcin Dessert wine). We talked about wines with Bill Oliver and our winemaker, Dennis Dunham. Then we broke into small groups to explore our onsite vineyard with Bill, Dennis and vineyard manager, Bernie Parker. It was a wonderful evening-great wines, great weather and great conversation.
Creekbend Experience Part II- What an amazing night!
If this looks like fun, then you don’t want to miss the final event of the Creekbend Experience on Saturday August 21st.
This event takes place at Creekbend Vineyard (15 minute drive from Oliver Winery) from 11am-2pm. Guests will enjoy delicious summer fare from FARMbloomington*, a private concert by Not Too Bad Bluegrass Band, guided walking tours of Creekbend Vineyard and wine tasting of the Creekbend Collection and other Oliver favorites.
Tickets are limited and going fast! The ticket price is $45/person and can be purchased in the Tasting Room or by calling 800-25-Taste. (By the way, wine club members get in for free-advanced registration is required.)

I think that this will be a perfect weekend getaway trip. The event ends at 2pm, so there would be plenty of time to explore Bloomington, the Indiana University campus or visit our Tasting Room. If you do decide to plan a weekend getaway, the Breakaway Bloomington site can help you in your planning.
OH! And I almost forgot! Our final Tunes on the Terrace Concert, Jenn Cristy, is on Friday August 20th. We still have a few tickets available. Come and spend the whole weekend with us!
*FARMbloomington is coming up with a great menu for this event. They will be offering treats like Green Market Crudités with Capriole Goat Cheese Dip, homemade pickles, local salsa, shrimp, tomato and basil pie, mushroom turnovers with truffle oil and Parmesan and Creekbend Vineyard Grapevine Roasted Venison!! Yummy!
Do not miss your chance to attend this exciting event, buy your tickets today! I hope to see you there!
