Tickets on sale for second annual SIPtacular Wine Fest

October 13, 2018

HUNTINGTON — Tickets are on sale now for the Siptacular wine festival.

The festival, in its second year, will be 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3 at Heritage Station and on 11th Street.

Organized by Sip Wine and Whiskey Bar at Heritage Station, the fest will feature more than 60 wines, as well as food trucks and live music from The Dividends and Heavy Hitters.

Allison White, owner of Sip, said that the first Siptacular last fall turned out as a great success enjoyed by many of their regulars as well as many people from around the Tri-State who were new to Heritage Station.

“We sold out last year, which was our goal, and it was a lot of fun having a festival that brought in new people to Heritage Station — that was a big reason to do it,” White said.

New this year will be a VIP hour. The hour will run from noon to 1 p.m. with festival-goers able to sample some higher-end wines as well as get a food voucher for Sip. VIP admission will be $70 while general admission will be $40. There will also be a $10 designated driver ticket available at the gate only.

Music will be at the Heritage Station pavilion while the wines, which will come from Galaxy Distributing, The Country Vintner, Mountain State and North Central Distributing, will be poured under tents out on 11th Street.

White said that the event, which is held rain or shine, will be small with no vendors or sponsors, just wine, food and music.

“I don’t do vendors for this, or sponsors, it’s just the wine and the food and music,” White said. “I want to keep it small and intimate and keep it here.”
