The “Independence Uncorked” Wine Festival will be held on September, 8th, 2018 from 1:00pm-6:00pm (noon for VIP ticket holders) on the grounds of the Historic Bingham-Waggoner Estate in Independence, MO. Independence Uncorked will be one of the largest Missouri wine festivals in the state featuring 25 Missouri wineries sampling several of their wines, a guest spirits distiller and 2400 attendees. The day will also feature art, music, beer, food booths and wine classes.
