THE MUSIC at Hernder Estate Wines extended until September

After a series of successful performances at Hernder Estate Wines in July and August, Winesday: the Musical + Tasting has been extended until the end of September. This new musical, which features wine tastings throughout the show, is presented as part of the month-long program of events at the Niagara Grape and Wine Festival.

“We love that the show has found such a perfect fit with Hernder and now the Niagara Grape and Wine Festival,” said Jenne Wason, author of books and lyricist of Winesday. “When we first created Winesday: The Musical, it’s exactly what we envisioned: audiences having a great night out at a show filled with music, laughter and WINE.”

Winesday was the first public event back in Wines from the Hernder estate after the historic winery suffered a devastating fire in March. The show takes place in the Moon Lounge, a smaller banquet space that was spared the fire, and Hernder is now open for tours and wine tastings as they prepare to rebuild.

With book and lyrics by Jenne Wason and the music of Joseph Benoit, Winesday: The Musical + Wine Tasting at Hernder features well-known Niagara talents who have performed in Oh Canada Eh, the Shaw Festival, and more. The cast includes Tamera BroczkowskiNicole Cino, Victoria Kyoko, Melissa Penner, Adrianne Polito and Louisa O’Keane with Alex Titei as sommelier. Matthew Yipchuck has taken the helm as manager and Chelsea DiFranco is music director.

About Winesday: The Musical + Wine Tasting

A musical accompanied by wine tastings for the public! It’s a grape escape from this crazy world of batsh*t.

When these five wine-loving women get together every Wednesday night, they’re nominally meeting for a book club or a yoga class, but in reality, they just want to drink wine and talk about their lives. Imagine cabaret meets cabernet or Sex and the City when they no longer want to leave the sofa. Get ready to pass the bottle and make some decisions because with these ladies, you’re sure to love the wine you’re with!
