Wineries are Magical
Poppy's has two new menu items tonight!
If you are eating lite in this hot weather or just want to protect your girlish figure like I am. The chicken salad with Sand Hollow wine grapes, walnuts and celery is a great choice. But the chicken and bacon club sandwich is to die for! If that doesn't  suit you the ever popular burger and fries will be available. 
July schedule 8, 9, 14, 15, 21, 22, 23 and 29th Girls Night Out 
Check Poppy's full menu online.
Yoga and a Wine Chaser !

You will walk away with a sense of peace and relaxation and ready for a glass of wine! Bring your own mat, an open mind, and a thirst for wine.

Limited space available. Email your reservation to

Road closed starting July 11th
Sand Hollow Rd will be closed for those guest that are coming from the East on US route 40. Please turn right on Cooks Hill Rd, the street right before Sand Hollow Rd., follow Cooks Hill Rd to Ballou Rd. and then turn left on Fairview Rd., then left on Sand Hollow Rd.. They are widening Sand Hollow Rd at the South end near US 40. I know that is a disappointment to those that like the banjo playing visual experience that the old road provided but for most of us we are very pleased!
Wine and Paint with Natalie July 22
Natalie will be painting something very similar to this photo. She will walk you step by step to create this beautiful painting. During this 1 1/2 - 2 hr session she will teach you basic color theory and brush techniques and step by step instruction on how to create every element in the painting!  Price per person : $30 includes glass of wine and all the painting supplies. This will be Natalie's first time at the winery so lets make her feel welcome.
Live - Music Police I'm Playing You!
Latest BMI Update: This might be coincidental BUT after Evolution played and I posted the "Cease and Desist" letter in this newsletter last week the winery website was hacked. Google flagged it as a potential malware site that would be dangerous to open up. Unfortunately, it was necessary to hire a third party to clean my website of malware but I am back up and in the good gracious with Google. However, when inquiring if the site could have been compromised by a disgruntle person like my friends at BMI they said absolutely. If they can hack into the FBI, Hillary' server and the White House they can surely get into a winery website. Hmmm probably should not have mentioned all of those sites now I'm on their watch list! Coincidentally the BMI letters and phone calls have stopped. That may change after this posting.
