On today's show, Sue Griep the President of Tyrone Events and two certified wine judges, Mary and Ivan Riggle stop by to tell us about the first ever "Walk the Wine in Tyrone" on Friday, August 15th in the downtown area. The Riggles also give us a demonstration on how to properly taste wine.
About the Walk the Wine Event: "12 businesses are paired with 12 local wineries. There is a VIP session that starts at 4 p.m. For $25, and you get to shop early and you receive a complimentary bottle of "Unstoppable Tyrone" wine. From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. you can get in for $15 prior to event and $20 at the door. All designated driver tickets are $10. With your paid registration, you get a wristband and a souvenir wine glass.
