Nothing warms you up better on cold winter evening than wine, friends and live music!

River Music Experience (129 Main Street Davenport) is hosting their 10th Annual Winter Wine Experience this Saturday Jan 19 on the 2nd floor of RME. The wine tasting will take place from 7 – 8:30 p.m. with an After Party continuing from 8:30 – 11 p.m.

Whether you prefer white or red, there will be many delicious wines for tasting! Also available will be amazing d’oeuvres, a 50/50 raffle, silent auction and live music performed by Kellen & Logan Meyers and Charlotte Boyer. The After Party will feature live music from Breakdown, a Tom Petty tribute band (with members of the Jason Carl Band and more).

The evening will feature a wide variety of wine from around the world for tasting, hors d’oeuvres, and live music all evening. As a special treat, they’ll have some excellent items available for raffle and silent auction. Some of those items include guitars signed by Leon Russell & Sublime with Rome, a year’s worth of shows in the Redstone Room, a package from Heart of America, and more!

Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door. For only $200 you can reserve a VIP table for 4 (includes admission) or $500 will get you a VIP reserved table for 10 (includes admission).  Tickets can be purchased online.

Winter Wine is presented by Dimitri Wine & Spirits. This is the RME’s biggest fundraiser of the year and supports all of their unique educational programming.
