About the event
In 2016, we took a truck full of ripe watermelons, crafted them into a sweet wine, and what started as an experiment turned into a sensation.
Made with watermelons sourced from Duffer's Farm in northeast Kansas, our Egyptian Watermelon wine gets its name from the origins of the fruit itself: Egypt. Turns out those ancient Pharaohs knew their stuff– so don't just "walk like an Egyptian," CRAWL like one as we celebrate this “One in a Melon” kind of wine!
Enjoy a complimentary sample of our Egyptian Watermelon Wine (for guests aged 21+) during Tasting Room hours. For one night only, we will be serving a watermelon-themed pop-up food menu, along with specialty watermelon wine slushies.
Duffer, the watermelon farmer, will also be selling his fresh-off-the-vine, homegrown watermelons for you to take home!
