“It’s time to enjoy some wine, so March comes then  April and May is Oregon Wine Month, so it’s time to  start thinking about drinking some local wine and  enjoying yourself,” said Lindsey Zagar at Del Rio Vineyards.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and tickets are still available either online or at the door.
