You’ll feel like a kid on Easter morning again at August Hill Winery’s Adult Egg Hunt from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, March 29 at the tasting room in Utica.

The winery has been hosting the event for over a decade on the Friday before Easter. It began as a fun way to invite adults to visit the winery to pick wines for Easter dinner, said Susanne Bullock, marketing manager.

All of the eggs will be hidden throughout the wine tasting bar area, and each customer is invited to find one egg. Some of the prizes inside the eggs include free food items, t-shirts, wine accessories and wine discounts.

While you’re hunting for eggs, enjoy lunch at the winery between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. A glass of wine of your choice is served with a choice of a mushroom panini, roasted tomatoes panini, soppressata panini or coppa panini. All lunches comes with tiramisu for dessert. The cost per person is $25.
