EVENT AIMED AT TURNING WINE INTO WATER
posted 03/19/2014 by email@example.com
An upcoming event is aimed at turning wine, or at least the money generated from the sale of wine, into water. The Lake Cumberland Winery in Monticello will host an event this Saturday, March 22nd, called the “Kentucky Spring Wine Festival”, from 10:00am to 6:00pm. During the event, which is also being held at other wineries across the region, your purchase of wine tasting, wine by the glass or wine by the bottle will help raise money for the “Wine To Water” program. The program has been active for the past ten years and has brought clean, fresh drinking water to more than 250,000 people, as well as providing 500 wells and 25,000 water filters to people who would otherwise be without cleaning drinking water. According to information provided by the program, one filter kit, costing about $65, will provide a family of ten with ten years of cleaning drinking water. Wineries taking part in Saturday’s event include Lake Cumberland Winery in Wayne County, Cedar Creek Vineyard and Winery in Pulaski County, Sinking Valley Winery in Pulaski County, and Up the Creek Winery in Cumberland County. For information on the event, or to take part as a musician, crafters or artisans, contact Norrie Wake at the Lake Cumberland Winery at 606-348-5253. You can also visitwww.lakecumberlandwinery.com.
