The second annual Newtown Uncorked is returning to the Newtown Swim Club. The event, sponsored by the Newtown Corporation, will feature wine tastings from Bucks County and regional vineyards, food from local restaurants, and live entertainment. It will be held from 2 to 6 p.m.

Brassell said Newtown Uncorked was extremely successful in its first year and he expects 1,000 people to turn out next month for the sequel.
Members of the Bucks County Wine Trail, which includes Rose Bank, Crossing Vineyards, Wycombe Vineyards, Buckingham Valley, and others, will be offering wine tastings. Additionally, other Pennsylvania winemakers will be present, Brassell said.
A $40 admission fee covers unlimited food and wine tasting. For the designated drivers, a $10 ticket includes food tastings and nonalcoholic beverages.
If you dig what you sip, wine from local vineyards will be available by the bottle to take home. There will also be live jazz music.
Brassell said the Newtown Corporation sold 450 tickets to the inaugural event in 2010. He expects that number to more than double this year. “It went very well,” he said of Newtown Uncorked last year. “It was a great event.”
Tickets will be available for purchase at the door if they don’t sell out ahead of time online. Attendance will be limited to 1,000, Brassell said. Everyone must be 21 or older to attend.
The money raised at the event will support the Newtown Corporation, which works to promote economic vitality and preservation in the borough and township. The Newtown Corporation is a community alliance among the Newtown Business Commons Association, Newtown Business and Professional Association, and the Newtown Historic Association.
The Newtown Corporation plans to use some of the funds raised at this year’s event to create a dining guide that will be distributed throughout the community, Brassell said.
