Landon's WineryIt all kicks of on Friday, September 14th at Landon Winery Wine Tasting. A wine tasting party at Landon’s Winery in downtown Greenville.  Bob Landon’s wit and charm combined with his passion for wine will entertain but will also educate participants about his vast arrays of wines.  Bob strolls through his barrels of aging wine while tapping fresh wine from the barrels to sample and elaborating on its history, name and origin. This experience is truly a unique experience for the palate, the mind and the funny bone.  Following the TLC wine tasting, participants could enjoy an outdoor dinner while viewing an outdoor street concert outside the Landon Winery by the Emerald City Band.
