by Jonathan Gaby on July 27, 2017

This summer has been great for us at Capital Cellars, with special tastings and events like the bottle signing with Bill Samuels, Jr. This weekend we will be treated to another concert on the steps of the Old Capital with our own mayor Bill May and his band. We know he plays a mean trap (and by trap we mean drums.)
