A Night of Hops & Vines is a fun and chic evening for adults who enjoy quality beer and wine while socializing and bidding on a fantastic silent auction. For its eighth year, approximately 200 participants gather at Blackhawk Country Club to sample dozens of wines from some of the country’s best vineyards, while viewing silent auction packages featuring Milwaukee Weekend Get-a-ways, Badger football tailgating packages, spa packages, and crafts from local artisans. Funds raised at this event help benefit programs and services offered by American Parkinson Disease Association which are designed specifically for people with Parkinson’s disease, caregivers, and partners. There will be wines for tasting and purchasing and delicious appetizers served at the benefit.
VIP Tasting Ticket: From 5:00-6:30 pm, there will be a VIP private wine tasting featuring Broman Cellars from St. Helena, California. The VIP private wine tasting will include three wines with special, small plate food pairings. A representative from Broman Cellars will share insight on each of the wines, their wine making process and answer questions. Guests will be able to order wine from Broman Cellars the night of the event if desired. There is very limited space for this event, and we expect it to sell out quickly—so please register early. Guests who purchase a VIP Tasting ticket will have access to the General Event.
General Event Ticket: If purchasing the general ticket, the event will begin at 6:30 pm and wrap up at 9 pm. The General Event will include wine & beer tasting and a great silent auction. We will have two local beer vendors serving throughout the night with live musical entertainment by The Driveway Thriftdwellers!
