Thirty-two merchants will each feature a different wine for tasting, with 11 whites, 13 reds, and seven specialty drinks available to sample, said Courtney Collins, Main Street manager.

Piedmont Newnan Wellness Center will offer bottled water. Music will begin at 5 p.m. on the Court Square, where artist and songwriter Andy Lees will kick off the entertainment for the evening. At 6 p.m. featured guest Uncle Fudd will begin performing their live Bluegrass set at the same location.

Event goers must provide a valid photo ID at the registration table for admittance. Upon sign-in, each participant will receive a commemorative wine glass and an event bracelet and informational brochure.
