Looking for an evening away from your busy, hectic life? Travel to Renner, SD to Strawbale Winery for the 5th annual Quilts & Vines event.
Stroll through the idyllic vineyard grounds at Strawbale Winery with hundreds of colorful quilts draping grape vines and hanging throughout the winery.
Walking through the vineyards you will be amazed at the detail and craftsmanship that goes into each quilt. The quilts serve as canvases for different scenes and themes depicted on each quilt.
During the event you will also be able to enjoy wine tasting, food, and musical entertainment, provided by Poker Alice.
Wines that will be available for tasting are produced with only South Dakota-grown fruits, berries, and grapes.
This event will take place August 13, 2011, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event costs $12 at the door or $10 in advance. You are able to purchase tickets in advance at Heirloom Creations, 3800 S. Western Ave., Sioux Falls, S.D., and Strawbale Winery, 47215 257 St., Renner, SD, and Lewis Drug Stores.
While you are enjoying this unique event you will also be helping those in need. A portion of the ticket prices will go to support the local Project Linus chapter, an organization that gives blankets to children that have been traumatized by illness or abuse, and Camp Bring It On, a camp for kids with cancer.
Strawbale Winery will not be allowing parking on their grounds for this event. However, there will be a free shuttle service provided from the designated parking lot located at the Renner/Crooks exit 86 off Interstate 29.
