BendBroadband sponsors Uncorked, Sept. 15-16

Nothing goes better together than wine, cheese, chocolate, and live music. Attend the two-day wine tasting event “Uncorked, Sunriver Style” on Sept. 15-16 and you’ll experience the wines from the Pacific Northwest.

While at this fun event, be sure to stop by the BendBroadband booth and meet Sunriver’s dedicated representative Kelsie Bixler. For you football fans, the BendBroadband booth will be right next door to where the Ducks game will be broadcast.

In addition, be sure to check out the Wine & Cheese Pairing Class, food trucks, other vendors and live music as well.

The $15 general admission is good for both days and includes one tasting token and a souvenir stemless wine glass. For an additional $5, learn which cheese to pair with your wine of choice. Proceeds of the classes will benefit the Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory.

Taste wines and choose your favorite to sip while you listen to live music. Friday night will feature Petty Fever, a Tom Petty cover band, and Kinzel & Hyde and Tone Red will play on Saturday. The event will be held at Benham Hall & John Gray Amphitheater at the Sunriver Homeowners Association Recreation Center (SHARC).

Whether you like red, white, or rosé, there will be a wine for everyone. This year, 16 area wineries are participating. Not sure what you like? Discover your new favorite wine at Uncorked Sunriver Style.

BendBroadband is a proud sponsor of this event, which provides us a great opportunity to connect with our Sunriver customers.
