Event: Honey and Wine Tasting

Flying Goat Cellars Hosts “Sustainable Gardening Begins with Honey Bees”


It doesn’t take much to be feted in the U.S.; August is touted as national goat cheese month, for example. Among the seemingly silly subjects recognized (others include Happiness Happens, Audio Appreciation, and Panini) there is at least one that does deserve a shout-out — the honeybee. An integral player in the balance of nature, the striped flyer also claims August as the month of its national day, and Flying Goat Cellars is throwing them a party in the form of a wine and honey tasting. Called Sustainable Gardening Begins with Honey Bees, the event features an award-winning exhibit from the Santa Maria Valley Beekeepers Association and a real hive on display and tips on beekeeping and sustainable gardening from members of the Lompoc Valley Beekeepers Association. And, of course, there will be honey to taste and wines to sip. Pooh Bear would approve. The affair is part of Flying Goat Cellars’ Wine & Culture in the Ghetto series and takes place Saturday, August 16, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., at Flying Goat Cellars, 1520 East Chestnut Court, Lompoc Wine Ghetto. For more information, call 736-9032 or visit flyinggoatcellars.com.
