RawWine2017Poster_Final2Explore the delicious variety of natural wine in the raw beauty of a historic, reclaimed industrial space while raising funds for the Steel Yard and its programs.

Campus Fine Wines and the Steel Yard share the core belief in a world made by hands, where production is crafted and producers are connected to their audience, enriching our lives and creating cultural and economic value.

New Harvest Coffee has offered up complimentary espresso shots for the duration of the event, Unkle Thirsty will be spinning tunes, there will be a blacksmithing demonstration by Yardie & instructor, Nick Tomlin, and an interactive art installation by Tara Ebsworth
