Even The Beach Boys would agree that Chevy “409” sitting there real cool like near Gervasi Lake is, well, fine. But wait; is that a ‘32 Coupe next to the Tuscan Pavilion? And over there, by the vineyard, that has to be the most perfect looking ‘62 Ferrari GTO you’ve ever seen.
Classic car sightings like these and hundreds more are all possible this summer at Gervasi Vineyard’s ongoing weekly car Cruise-Ins held Wednesdays at the vineyard from 5-8pm through September.
At what has to be the most amazingly picturesque place for a car show ever, these casual, fun, family friendly gatherings for car lovers of all ages are free and feature a wide range of cars and trucks from the very old to the not so old. Enjoy the best of both worlds as you wander between fenders while enjoying the surrounding beauty of the vineyard’s grounds and buildings.
Each Cruise-In is sponsored by a different car club featuring American as well as foreign classic cars, but anyone is welcome to add their own classic car to the mix. Weekly door prizes and 50/50 raffles benefiting select charities are part of the mix every week along with food discounts for the first 100 car owners in the showcase lot.
But, just a reminder – do not forget where you are! Yes, those cars are cherry, but just feet from a chrome fender or two is The Piazza patio, the perfect place for dinner and drinks after taking in the four-wheeled sights.
The Piazza offers casual dining in wide open seating in full view of the vineyard’s spring-fed lake. Gervasi’s world-class red and white wines are available on the patio along with craft beers and the fan-favorite sangria. Bocce is played just feet from The Piazza so if you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at this European classic, here’s your chance. After dinner, throw a blanket on the lawn next to the lake and chill as the sun sets once again on Canton’s Italian-inspired oasis of charm, class, good eats and fine drinks.
