Shine & Wine Festival returns for third year / September 20, 2017
Three years ago, a small band of Chase City residents were looking for new ways to bring visitors to their town, and to promote local businesses.

At the same time, Robert Bondurant, whose family is famous for their moonshine, was readying his new distillery in town, where he planned to produce and sell moonshine based on the family recipe. Down the road, William Hill was producing and selling country wines from fruit grown on his farm.

The volunteer group — known as Chase City Special Events — decided to focus on a fun way to bring these two businesses in front of a larger audience. From that idea, Chase City’s annual Shine & Wine Festival was born.

Launched on Sept. 26, 2015, the Shine & Wine has grown and now offers mead, moonshine and wine tastings from American Way Country Wines, Belle Isle Moonshine, Bondurant Brothers Distillery, Hill Top Berry Farm & Winery, Mattaponi Winery, Rosemont, and Three Sisters Winery.

Throughout the afternoon there will be music performed by the award winning WORX band and products for sale from local artisans

The Shine & Wine runs from noon-6 p.m. Saturday. It is a rain or shine event staged at the Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative Pavilion, 11633 Hwy 92 W., Chase City. Tickets are $20 in advance — they can be purchased on line at — or $25 at the gate. You must be 21 or older to attend the Shine & Wine.
