Ahhhh, Fall…changing colors, cool temperatures, pumpkins, trick-or-treat, turkey dinner, family and lots of red wine. As the season changes and we move indoors it becomes the time to get together with friends. The Nectar wineries are busy hauling in the 2011 harvest creating the perfect beverage for you to enjoy in 1-3 years. While this year’s grapes become a future celebratory drink, we hope you’ll enjoy the October events at Nectar. Enjoy life with friends, drink happy.

FIRST FRIDAY – This month we are featuring the abstract art of artist Jeffrey Lloyd. Jeffrey’s painting style develops into an array of shapes and layers. The inspiration for his paintings are spiritual and emotional, having to do with faith and friendship. The occasional life experience is also evident giving a realistic interpretation to his paintings. Accompanying Jeffrey’s art is the amazing musical styling of Darin Hilderbrand. Artist reception starts at 5pm and music begins at 6:30.
