The wet weather
didn't put a cork in the Vinton Wine and Food Festival Saturday afternoon.
wineries filled up a lot of glasses during the annual fundraiser for the Vinton
Chamber of Commerce.
The chamber says the
money allows them to put on more than a dozen major events in Vinton. They say that brings more people to town.
"A lot of people,
especially at the wine festival the last few years, they say I've never even
been to Vinton. So we want people to
come see what Vinton has to offer -- businesses, restaurants, and even to live
here in the town," said Angie Chewning-Lewis with the Chamber of Commerce.
This is the 4th
annual chamber wine festival, which they say is one of their most popular
WSLS 10 is a proud sponsor.
