Summer is getting a little bit sweeter on Saturday, when Sweet Acre Farms will roll out three new wines at its Wine Woogie Fest.

Matt and Lindsey Vrahiotes and their team at Sweet Acre have come up with a blueberry pomegranate wine, a blueberry and blackberry honey wine (also called mead) named Old Slew Foot, and a sangria named No Drama Llama.

Wine Woogie Fest

When: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, July 7

Where: 7584 Bill Wilson Road, Alto

How much: Free to enter, wine and food cost

Matt Vrahiotes said this week the pomegranate wine was made at the request of the Georgia Pomegranate Association.

That’s right -- there’s a Georgia Pomegranate Association.

And all three wines will be behind the bar and on the grounds at the festival tucked into the northeast corner of Hall County. It starts at 11 a.m. at 7584 Bill Wilson Road in Alto.

The summer wine festival will include Gonzo Gourmet, the farm-to-table food truck from Lumpkin County and live music from the Gregg Erwin Duo (playing from noon to 3 p.m.) and Larry Scroggs Trio (playing from 3:30-6:30 p.m.).

And if you get in the door early on Saturday, you’ll get a chance to pick your own blueberries on the Alto property. The U-pick offer is $17 per gallon of blueberries picked.
