September 30, 2013 (Ramona) – The H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project of Ramona, along with their sponsors, will present the First Annual Ramona Art and Wine Festival, to be held at the Amy Strong Castle at Mount Woodson. The festival will be held on November 2, 2013 from noon to 6 pm. Art, wine and food enthusiasts may purchase passports to the event by visiting www.RamonaArtandWineFest.net. General admission passports are $60, and a V.I.P. Passport is being offered for $110 that will include an exclusive “Winemakers’ Dinner” in the spring of 2014 (date TBD).
The event features local artists, Ramona wineries, and local chefs – each of which will be located around the castle and its grounds to encourage a meandering flow of guests. Musicians will provide elegant background music as our patrons browse the creations of 15 fine artists, sip award-winning wines from 12 wineries, and taste the culinary delights of 5 local chefs.
All proceeds from this event benefit the H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project and its goal to “create a reason for those passing tourists to stop and enjoy Ramona’s beauty, charm, character, and heritage, and to rest a spell.”
