Newberry winery announces spring music series

Enoree River Winery has announced the spring line up for their bi-annual Unpack the Porch music series.

Richard and Laura LaBarre, owners and winemakers, announced the return of the free live music series which takes place from 2 to 6 pm on Sunday afternoons.

Local acts include favorites such as The Time Pirates, Killer Beez along with performances by Mandy Addy, Noel Lindler and The Bunch Quitters.

The full list of spring dates, bands and food trucks who will return to the vineyard is listed below.

Originally named Pack the Porch, the idea was to fill the winery’s spacious wrap-around porch with the sound of music and laughter as visitors enjoyed live entertainment and a variety of real fruit wines made onsite.

With the advent of the pandemic, the LaBarre’s decided to rename the series for the comfort and security of their guests. Unpack the Porch takes place in Spring and Fall, with a short Summer hiatus due to the heat and is celebrating its 5th year with the 2023 season. Live music will not be performed on Easter Sunday, April 10 but will be performed on Mother’s Day, May 14 with a pre-order charcuterie box treat sold by Rodgers Creations. Details for pre-order purchases will be available at and in April.

The winery spreads out over 11 acres and guests are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket for their comfort, as well as walk the grounds to see the vines in their various stages of growth before or during each performance. Guests can sample up to 3 different wines before buying wine by the glass or by the bottle or refreshing ice cold wine slushies, in season. Tastings are not offered during music performances or special events.

The changing food truck schedule allows repeat visitors the opportunity to enjoy a different tasty meal or snack with each visit.
