Ladies Mallow Run Winery Ride August 19

The Blue River Band will perform August 19 at Mallow Run Winery
The ladies cycling club Women Bike Indy will be having a bicycle ride starting at Mallow Run Winery on Saturday, August 19. Meet at the winery at 2:30 and be ready to ride at 3:00 PM. After the ride there will be a free concert featuring Blue River Band. The route will be 23 miles long on lightly traveled rural roads. You can see the route on Google Maps.

Mallow Run Winery is located in northwestern Johnson county, between Waverly and Bargersville. George Mallow settled the area in 1835 and built the barn which is now the tasting room. A nearby creek was named Mallow Run after him, which is the source of the winery's name. John Richardson grew up on this farm, then moved away to teach for 35 years. He came back after retiring, and planted his first grapes in 2000 on the 600 acre family farm. Today there are 8 acres of grapes, with the rest of the farm mostly planted in corn and soybeans. The tasting room opened in 2005.   

Mallow Run has a picnic concert series with performances each Saturday from Memorial weekend through September. Some of the concerts are free while there is a charge for others. Blue River Band will be performing a free show on August 19.They are a local country band, and have twice won the 8 Seconds Saloon "Country Battle of the Bands." Below are a couple videos of their songs:
