Join Steve Ledson and his corvettes at Ledson Winery & Vineyards (www.ledson.com) for the 13th Annual Corvettes at the Castle extravaganza, which will be held Saturday, October 19 from 10am-4pm. Corvette enthusiasts can enjoy a lovely afternoon mingling with Steve Ledson and other Corvette lovers among the classic cars lining the magnificent circular driveway in front of The Ledson Castle. This occasion is the ideal opportunity to taste award-winning and critically acclaimed wines at one of the intimate tasting salons and learn more about the Ledson family philosophy of winemaking. The fall season is upon us making it a great time to picnic with gourmet food from the Ledson Marketplace under the majestic oak trees at this amazing destination winery.
Corvette enthusiasts can vote for the top three cars and are encouraged to bring their own corvette to join in on the competition. Cars that want to be in the show are asked to arrive by 10am to register and will be placed in a designated parking area. There is no cost to attend or to enter your car. Ledson Winery will provide complimentary tastings for each driver and passenger that enters their car into the show. The first place prize is a 3L etched bottle of 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The prize second is a 1.5L etched bottle of 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. There is also a People’s Choice award and the winner will receive a regular bottle of the 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
