As spring fades into summer on Friday, June 19, Little River Wetlands Project will host its second annual “Wine on the Wetlands,” a wine-tasting fundraiser, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. The event, presented by Aqua Indiana, will take place at LRWP’s Eagle Marsh preserve, 6801 Engle Road, Fort Wayne. Tickets ($35 each) should be reserved in advance as attendance is limited to 400 people.
“It’s a beautiful time of year at the marsh,” says LRWP executive director Amy Silva, “and everyone should have even more fun than at last year’s event.” Guests will sample local wines from Country Heritage, McClure’s Orchard, Tonne and Two EE’s wineries, all part of the "WINE Tour" Wineries of Indiana’s Northeast. Light appetizers will be provided, with food also available for purchase.
Dress is casual, with the event to take place in the Eagle Marsh barn and a large tent set up for the occasion. Professional musician Kenny Bergle will play light jazz in the background. Guests will receive a commemorative wine glass and can take a guided walk to see the preserve at dusk if they wish.
Attendees must be age 21 or older.
