GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT)-Last year, Huntsville hosted an event that had people lining up in the streets to attend; Big Spring Crush, Huntsville's first wine tasting festival. Saturday, that festival was brought to Guntersville for it's first wine tasting event, City Harbor Wine Crush.
Homegrown LLC is at it again, bringing another sold out wine tasting event to Northern Alabama.
Owner and Chief Creator of Homegrown LLC, Ashley Ryals was pleased with the turnout for the inaugural event. "It was a sold out event. We had some people calling the last couple days trying to get tickets, we hate to turn away people, but we're hoping it encourages them to buy their tickets early next year," says Ryals.
The event had plenty of things to do, and taste, including a variety of 200 different wines. "Thousands people are walking around, enjoying the food trucks, live music, we've got a grape stomping area, and all the wine tasting sales tonight are going to the Ladies Civilian Club to help build an all accessible playground," says Ryals.
City Harbor Wine Crush was such a success, organizers are already brainstorming ways to make it bigger and better next year. "We're definitely looking at making this an annual event for Guntersville, that was the goal all along, and you know our goal was 1000 people and we hit that goal, so we're excited to say we'll be coming back next year," Adds Ryals.
Ticket sales for the second annual Big Spring Crush in Huntsville went on sale Saturday, the event is set for September 26th.
