Appel Farm Arts & Music Center presents its first Music & Wine Festival on Saturday, October 3. The focus is regional, with a variety of music, wine, and artisans from South Jersey, Philadelphia and Delaware. Fifteen of the area’s preeminent wineries will be there, and for those choosing the overnight option, a special dessert wine tasting will be held around the campfire! Music acts include the Philadelphia trio No Good Sister; South Jersey’s swing cabaret band Swing the Cat; Delaware singer/songwriter Nancy Micciulla; and Steppin’ Razor, a roots-rock-reggae band. Appel Farm’s Tracy Powers talks to Susan Wallner about the evolution of the festival, and what to expect if you go.
