Sunset Vine Paint & Wine

September 20, 2019

4:00 – 7:00 PM


Join us for a festive Friday night! Watch the sun set over the grape vines at the beyond beautiful Bokish Vineyards. Sip a glass of award-winning Spanish varietal wine. Munch on tasty tapas (that’s Spanish for appetizers). And of course, make your own incredible painting of the view – no artistic talent or experience needed! You can even customize the colors on your painting if you’d like. It’s a night you’ll never forget! Perfect for girls night out, date night, or just need to get out of the house night.

Each ticket includes painting, a glass of wine, and food. This will be an outdoor event, please dress accordingly.
