Newberry’s Enoree River Winery announces the music line up for the
Fall season of “Unpack the Porch”
As the Summer season cools, folks turn their attention to getting back outdoors and Newberry’s Enoree River Winery offers the perfect setting for outdoor fun! The popular free music series, “Unpack the Porch” returns to the vineyard for weekly performances starting September 11th.
Richard and Laura LaBarre, owners, and winemakers, announced the return of their popular free live music series which takes place from 2 to 6pm on Sunday afternoons. The series kicks off with a karaoke event hosted by DJ Reggie and is followed by 9 weeks of performance. Local acts include favorites such as the Lindler Graddick Duo, Sherri Cafaro Band, the Killer Beez, Henry Brooks & Bluegrass Remedy, as well as the debut performance of artists Watson and Autry. A special performance with the Time Pirates and Cash Money Experience will take place on Saturday, October 8th for the annual Newberry Harvest Festival at the vineyard. The vineyard will be closed on Sunday, October 9th.
The full list of Fall dates, bands and food trucks is listed below.
Originally named “Pack the Porch”, the idea was to fill the winery’s spacious wrap-around porch with the lively sound of music and laughter as visitors enjoyed live entertainment and a variety of real fruit wines made onsite. With the advent of the pandemic, the LaBarre’s decided to rename the series for the comfort and security of their guests. “Unpack the Porch” takes place in Spring and Fall, with a short summer hiatus due to the heat and is celebrating its 4th year with the 2022 season.
The winery spreads out over 11 acres and guests are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket for their comfort, as well as walk the grounds to see the vines in their various stages of growth before the Fall harvest. Guests can purchase wine by the glass or by the bottle or even indulge in a tasty wine slushie. The changing food truck schedule allows repeat visitors the opportunity to enjoy a different tasty meal or snack with each visit. Supporting the food trucks is a great opportunity to support small local business but also to ensure their return visit for future performance, no outside food, drinks, cups, or coolers are allowed.
Known for their Wine Tastings along with a list of seasonal varieties, Enoree River makes its wines of 100% real juice without chemical enhancements. Tastings are suspended during Sunday’s music series. Guests are encouraged to visit Thursdays through Saturday for the tasting experience during the Fall UnPack the Porch series. The series ends on Sunday, November 20th.
