Here at the City Paper, we dream of time traveling back to the summer of 1969 and that little farm in Bethel, N.Y. Seeing Jimi Hendrix close out Woodstock or hearing Janis Joplin’s coarse voice ringing out are what dreams are made of. And while nothing will ever top the little festival that changed music history, we can still get in the Woodstock spirit. Case in point: Winestock at Irvin~House Vineyards, where bands will rock out the 48-acre vineyard and winery where $5 will get you a wine glass and the chance to try all five of the muscadine wines that are made in-house. And Firefly Distillery will be open so you can sample up to six of Firefly’s 24 spirits — complete with a complimentary shot glass — for $6. Fran Collins created the event to reminisce on her Woodstock days and says, “Winestock will bring people together for a day of flashbacks and fun.” The Dead 27s will headline with some ’70s-inspired tunes. Psychedelic jazz group Old You and cover band One Kool Blow will also hit the stage. Guests are encouraged to dress the part, and the winner with the best bell bottoms wins either wine or liquor. Kids can enjoy the day too by getting their faces painted, playing cornhole, climbing the tire swing, or heading over to the petting zoo to meet the funky chickens, a mini brahma cow named Ida Claire, baby deer named Kevin, bunnies, and some stair-climbing goats. Craft vendors will be at the event with jewelry, wine glasses, bed swings, and Charleston Bathworks’ soaps and lotions. The Dulce Truck, King of Pops, and Ben & Jerry’s will be offering delectable desserts, and Lowcountry Creole, Rollin’ South, Stono Café, and Mike’s Boiled Peanuts will contribute some heartier eats. And Winestock does have one major up on Woodstock — bathrooms.
