Slip away for the fascination of Liquid Art Winery

Posted on June 22, 2018 at 8:18 AM by Michael Goens

Father’s Day 2018 was a day of flabbergasting fun at Liquid Art Winery & Estate. Chasing bocce balls, lobbing cornhole bags and whacking croquet orbs tends to melt away stress. Then again, normal days at Liquid Art are like a languid stroll along the beach, plucking up seashells and tossing pebbles toward the crashing surf. The life of lithesome leisure. Time is largely irrelevant on our own western shoreline of the rolling Flint Hills. Pressing notions of “to-do” lists evaporate when guests gaze upon the gently settling sun, fading into the far-extending, green-tinted grasslands that comprise the Kansas horizon near MHK.

Native grasses bend in degrees like rolling surf, mindful of levitating above masses of ocean. Press pause on life’s DVR to choose from a dozen wine selections; among the succulent selections include tropical Brianna and sunset white. Settle into a lawn chair to absorb Liquid Art’s Concert on the Patio, which on June 21 features Red State Blues Band. Gather your own deck-top domain for music concerts (next: July 12; July 26, The Wildwoods), Late Night Patio Party or Friday Night Flix (July 6 movie).

Relaxation taken to another level

Liquid Art throws the region’s best mellow-brations, low-key gatherings with top-notch, Flint Hills-inspired wines and ciders from the Estate’s own vineyards; high-energy with concerts, patio parties and recurrent exchanges of marriage nuptials. It’s been two years since Danielle and David Tegtmeier began to see the fruits of their labor … those fruits being acres and acres of Kansas grapevines.

Ciders have also been a real hit, tapped from an antique, still-chord-playing piano – yes, really! – with seven tasty varieties with sweet flavor of apple pie and cherry limeade among five more dripping with savory flavor. Just introduced, Dave & Dani’s line of bottled cider. Just as with Liquid Art wines, take a dip of Flint Hills heaven with you when you leave.

Have a sip – take several – and savor what’s special about our prairie oasis just a pebble’s throw from Wildcat Creek off Scenic Drive (take Wildcat Creek Road west 2 miles; Liquid Art is located on north side of the road).

Experience what Manhappiness is all about, Liquid Art style.
