The Location for the Fall Wine Fest is the gardens of Ashford Manor. Probably one of the best-kept secrets in Georgia, the five-acre estate looks out over hostoric Watkinsville’s Main Street. The historic 1893 Victorian Manor House has been in the family for over 100 years. It’s secluded gardens surrounded by magnolias, red buds and pines create the perfect atmosphere for the day’s festivities.

2013 OCAF WINE FEST!

Celebrating its 14th year, the OCAF Fall Wine Fest took place on the beautiful grounds of Ashford Manor in historic Watkinsville, GA. on Sunday, October 27, 2013 from 3-6 p.m. Thie 2013 event showcased local culinary talent, wineries, brewerys, bottle shops and an exciting Silent Auction. "The Fall Wine Fest supports the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation (OCAF)", says Becky Powell, 2013 Event Chair. "Founded in 1994 as an all-volunteer non-profit arts center, OCAF features annual cultural arts events, art exhibits, art education programs and other special community outreach activities. This event is crucial in supporting OCAF's mission as being an artistic hub for the area."


"This year we featured some of the best culinary talent in the area!", say Kathleen McQuiston, volunteer Vendor Organizer. "We work very hard to support and showcase local restaurants, regional wineries and brew-masters", she adds. "It is one of the most popular food and wine events in Northeast Georgia".


"The silent auction featured many new items, including a Holland America Line cruise for 2", says Rosemary Stancil, Auction Chair. Other exciting items included original artwork, "experience" packages such as private studio tours, food & wine baskets, and much more. Proceeds will directly benefit OCAF.

 

"We are pleased to have the beautiful Ashford Manor as our host venue", says Becky. "The gardens are secluded and visually delightful, a great place to relax, be with friends, and enjoy a nice Sunday afternoon".
