This hysterical show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on stage. Sexy and fast paced, this show is definitely for adults, but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids!

Leap into Celebration of Wine

It is Leap Year, after all! You’re probably asking yourself what exactly does one celebrates on Leap Year, right? So we did a little research, digging around to discover just what the big deal is, and we were pretty fascinated by the origins of this day that only comes every four years! It’s really a mathematical equation that seeks balance, something winemakers strive towards also. Now that we have that in common, let’s celebrate this “Free day” once every four year event! 4JGs will be in the middle of winter pruning, so there will be pruning demonstrations (for the hearty), a warm firepit and s’mores, and of course, award winning wines.
