Events at Pickers Creek Winery
We have "MUSIC ON THE PORCH" every Saturday night April through October.  We also have 'MUSIC ON THE PORCH" on some nights during the cold months (November 1 through March 31) now that we have enclosed and heated our porch.  However, it is sporadic and you should check the website and/or sign up to receive our e-mails so you will know which nights and the times.  On one Saturday night per month that is closest to the full moon (April 1 through October 31) we have our "FULL MOON PICKIN."  To be sure which Saturday night is closest to the full moon, again, check our website.   All ages and levels of musicians that play an "unplugged" string instrument are welcome to come and "pick" with all the musicians.  All others are welcome to come and "grin" and enjoy the wine and music.   We also have other events posted on our website:
