What people say
  1. Amanda

    I am looking for some vendor information for your up coming Food truck event.  My name is Amanda and I’m a consultant for Usborne Books & More. We offer wonderful books for everyone from babies to teens and even some things for adults!  Do you have an Usborne Book Lady yet?  If not, do you know if you had one at last year’s event?

    I look forward to hearing back from you!

    Why is this called “Touch of Italy”?

    • Laurita Winery

      It’s not really a full-blown Italian festival, but we’ll have an Italian Market, and many food trucks will be making specialty Italian dishes for the event! So, a “touch” of Italy 🙂

    Is it just wine served or can you get beer or alcoholic beverages?

    Reply KK 12 September 2018, 16:05
    • Laurita Winery

      We are not permitted to sell any alcohol that we don’t produce on the premises. So no beer, but we DO have an amazing Sangria!
