BOONVILLE — Wine is usually what guests at RagApple Lassie Vineyards are there to enjoy, but last week a different beverage was the main feature of the day. The Dirty Fingers Garden Club of Piney Creek is well known for its annual high tea events.

Lenna Hobson, a native of Piney Creek in Alleghany County, said the tea parties hosted by the garden club are legendary. Her sister, Sarah, is a longtime member of the club. Hobson said she was thrilled to have the group host its famous soiree at the winery.

Attendees came from Alleghany County as well as Yadkin and Surry counties to enjoy live music, savories, sweets and tea. Of course, there was wine served as well.

Hobson hopes that the tea will become an annual tradition at the winery.
