Our 10th Annual Chicken Wing Cook-Off is Sunday, June 23, 2019. We'll have over a half ton of chicken wings that will be expertly prepared by various chefs who will be competing with each other. No judges this year...people’s choice determines the winners. Wings will be available for purchase at 1:00 - 4:00 or until they run out. Wing prices have gone up 30% since last year so our wing tickets will be $1.00 each. Lick Creek Country Band will entertain you while you feast and enjoy your favorite beverages. Their one-of-a-kind performance is always a big hit at the winery. Cold beer will be available and like always we will have our delicious Hill Prairie Wines. There will be a $10 entry fee which includes our logo glass. We are open for business at noon and music plays from 2:00 - 5:00. Bring your friends for a Sunday afternoon of tasty wings and top flight entertainment. Come early to get a good seat and bring a lawn chair just in case. You are also allowed to bring your own pop-up tent. Please do not bring your own drinks. Thanks in advance for your cooperation. We are looking forward to a great summertime treat! Our doors open at noon. Sponsors for this event are Brandt Consolidated, Nikles Of Petersburg, and Gillmore-Allen Insurance Agency
