Thanks to your early support with advance ticket purchases and overwhelming community and corporate support, our party is moving to a larger and stunning setting: The Clubhouse at Frederica Golf Club. Sip, savor and socialize in the splendid setting of the exclusive Frederica Clubhouse, where each room is a treasure with grand interiors and impressive art. Reminisce with the Golden Isles’ favorite trio, “3 of Us,” and shop our silent auction for local, national and international trips, sporting experiences, restaurants, spas, and more.
Taste of the Vine Patrons and a Champagne Cruise – Limited Quantity
Guests who purchase Taste of the Vine Patron tickets will enjoy a charming champagne cruise aboard vintage, hand-crafted boats departing from the Adirondack-style boathouse on the banks of the 400-acre Frederica Lake. Seasoned captains will guide the boats while sharing stories of the fish and fowl found in this lovely low country setting. One might spot a bald eagle soaring above, or a Wood Stork sunning on the Frederica lakeshore in the federally protected, Wood Stork nesting area. Graceful egrets and cranes are also regular visitors to these waters, where a late autumn afternoon awaits patrons one hour prior to the 14th annual Taste of the Vine. After the cruise, guests will be transported directly to the Clubhouse for the party.
Friends of the Families and a Divine Dinner – Limited Quantity
Friends of the Families patrons also have an extraordinary experience to look forward to with two delicious evenings this fall: Taste of the Vine on October 21 and an intimate and divine Chef’s Dinner and Demonstration with Atlanta-based, James Beard award winner, Chef Keith Schroeder. “Friends” will gather at Golden Isles Olive Oil Company for this private dinner on Saturday, November 3rd. Wine, dinner and luxury ice cream … what could be better? The joy of learning from a highly creative and esteemed chef in an inviting environment. Keith Schroeder, founder of High Road Craft Ice Cream, creates exquisite ice cream, gelato, and sorbet for high-end retailers and fine restaurants and will also create for “Friends” based on his love affair with food and his 20+year career as an executive chef in luxury hotels and restaurants. Alton Brown called High Road, “the best ice cream in America right now.” Be a friend and bring a friend for two special nights.
