What is the attire for the VIP Sip and Savor Event?

The event is not formal, but nice. We do not recommend shorts and tank tops. 

Long pants and Springtime dresses are great. We suggest nice, business casual. This is an outside event, so weather can dictate some things. Dress in layers if there is any question about the temperature.  Since it is outside we don’t recommend high heels for the ladies, unless they enjoy getting stuck on the lawn!

*If disagreeable weather is in the forecast, there is a back up location which will be revealed a day or two before the event.
