WINFIELD — The yearly “Uncork the Music” series at Wheat State Wine will begin this weekend with a performance from the Terry Quiett Band.
The music series generally is held outdoors on the lawn of the winery, which is located at 23622 Springhill Farm Drive.
Tickets are $20 per carload at the door, and attendees are welcome to bring their own non-alcoholic beverages and snacks.
Since the weather might be bad this weekend, the vineyard owners have released some information about possible changes in the venue.
“If it is dry, it will be outside, and we will have a couple bonfires going. If it is wet, we will be indoors,” they said in a Facebook post.
“Our inside space isn’t quite as spacious, so we we’re really crossing our fingers that any rain will be in the morning on Saturday.”
This week, the This or That Food Truck also will be on hand to provide refreshments for sale.
“We will have wine and beer for sale … please leave outside alcoholic beverages at home,” the owners said.

About Wheat State Wine
Wheat State Wine Company began in 2008 when the owners planted their first vines at owner and winemaker Chris Tyler’s family farm, just southeast of Winfield.
Since then, wines from the vineyard have won “Kansas Wine of the Year” honors in 2012 and several medals at national wine competitions.
“We are very proud of what we have achieved in such a short time, and look forward to even greater things ahead,” they said on Facebook.
“We offer free wine tastings, and tours of the winery and vineyard. We encourage you to visit us and picnic on the grounds or enjoy our wine on the patio.”
