Get your tickets now for the third annual Auburn-Opelika Wine Trail slated for Friday, October 25! Don’t miss out on the chance to experience three wineries in East Alabama with a special farm-to-table lunch provided by Bow & Arrow. The Flower Bed, a local flower truck will also be present for this year's event. 

Guests will begin the day bright and early at the Lee County Fairgrounds at 8 a.m., where spacious Tiger Transit buses will be waiting to transport wine enthusiasts for the entire day.

The first stop on the trail is Five Points Farms, a five-acre vineyard located just north of Auburn in the small town of Five Points. Enjoy a tour of this scenic farm where American, French Hybrid and muscadine grapes are grown. Tastings will also be available.

Next on the trail is Hodges Vineyards & Winery, located in Camp Hill. Hodges offers a vast selection of muscadine, grape and fruit wines to sample and purchase. All wines are bottled on-site; the more unique fruits, such as apples, blueberries and blackberries, are imported from farms local to Alabama.

New this year, guests can enjoy a farm-to-table lunch provided by Bow & Arrow while at Hodges Vineyards & Winery. Participants will also have the opportunity to purchase flower arrangements from The Flower Bed, a flower truck local to Auburn. Learn more about The Flower Bed here.

The last stop on the trail is Whipporwill Vineyards, a family owned and operated winery nestled in the historic town of Notasulga. Savor the final stop of the day as you’re guided through the elegant countryside. Whipporwill also offers fresh honey and other products harvested on-site.

Tickets to the Auburn-Opelika Wine Trail are $55 + tax each and include transportation and lunch. Guests will arrive back to the Fairgrounds at approximately 4 p.m. Be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes, extra money for purchasing bottles of wine and flower arrangements and a wine-tasting attitude!
