Auburn-Opelika Wine Trail

Tickets Now Available for the first Auburn-Opelika Wine Trail on Oct. 27

 

Wine lovers can expect a rare opportunity this  October with an all-day wine tasting extravaganza. Get your tickets now  for the first Auburn-Opelika Wine Trail coming up on Friday, October 27.  Don’t miss this chance to experience three wineries in East Alabama  with a special farm-to-table lunch provided by Acre.

 

Guests will begin the day bright and early,  meeting at the Lee County Fairgrounds at 8 a.m. where spacious Tiger  Transit buses will be waiting to transport our wine enthusiasts for the  entire day.

The first stop on the trail is Five Points Farms,  a five-acre vineyard located just north of Auburn in the small town of  Five Points. Enjoy the scenic farm where American, French hybrid and  muscadine grapes are grown. Tours and tastings will be available.

 

Next on the trail is Hodges Vineyards &  Winery, located in Camp Hill. Hodges offer a vast selection of  muscadine, grape, and fruit wines to sample and purchase. They bottle  wines on-site and import the more unique fruits, such as apples,  blueberries, and blackberries, from farms local to Alabama. While  tasting and exploring the vineyard, a farm-to-table lunch will be  provided by Acre. Lunch will feature Pecan Smoked Chicken Wraps with  Butterbean Slaw (slaw made with Stone Hollow Goat Cheese), Ralf’s  Pickles (from a local farmer) and Acre’s famous Pimento Cheese and  Chips. 

 

The last stop on the trail is Whipporwill  Vineyards, a family owned and operated winery nestled in the historic  town of Notasulga. Savor the final stop of the day as you’re guided  through the elegant countryside. Whipporwill also offers fresh honey and  other products harvested on-site.
