The sky was bursting with red, white and blue over rows of purple grapes Friday evening at Pickers Creek Winery. Owned by husband and wife team Phil and Lydia Butler George, Pickers Creek Winery features a variety of wines with names like Rockabilly Red, Tennessee "Twang", Fiddle-Dee-Dee and Three Dog White. The tasting room boasts original works of art and regularly showcases live music for ultimate entertainment.
The Georges kicked off the holiday weekend with a bang, bringing in musical acts The Bird & the Bear along with Tom Dixon to their free fireworks show July 3rd. Early birds snagged seating under the wrap around porch of the tasting room decorated with twinkle lights as dusk grew near, while the rolling lawn was alive with guests enjoying a seasonally cool evening outside. The line ran deep for local food truck King Fish Boss Hogg offering fried catfish sandwiches or guests could choose from chicken gumbo, hot wings, hamburgers and hotdogs.
As night settled in so did the guests on their blankets, chairs, and tents in anticipation of the fireworks show. Blue and green flashes of light zoomed around as children adorned with glo sticks ran and played till well best their bedtimes. Once the show began it was a sight to see! Star bursts of light lit up the sky in Lewisburg, TN signaling the start of the most patriotic weekend in America. When it was over guests were hesitant to call the evening quits and lingered a little longer stretching the evening as far as they could.
