The 25th Annual Vintage Celebration
Botham Vineyards & Winery • 8180 Langberry Road, Barneveld, Wisconsin
Sunday, August 9, 2020 • Featuring FERRARI
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.**
They are the elite and the elegant, the fast and the furious, the prancing horses of racing and sports-car fame. Traditionally red, they also surface in yellow and blue and metallic silver; sleek, sexy and fast. They are Dinos and 308s, Spiders, Mondials, Testarossas, Boxers and GTOs; largely out of reach for most, they live behind gated entrances and in the stables of the rich, famous and lucky heirs of wealthy relatives. A fierce 1960s0-era rivalry between the Ferrari 330 P4 and the Ford GT40 at LeMans and beyond brought this elite brand to dinner table conversations among motorsports enthusiasts around the world. And at the 25th Annual Botham Vineyards Vintage Celebration on Sunday, August 9, 2020, FERRARI will take center stage.
Of course these fabulous prancing horses will be accompanied by entries from all makes, models and eras; sleek, fast, rare, foreign, domestic, touring, racing, Sunday drivers and showroom stock, woody wagons, pre-war, post-war, American Muscle and survivors; ragtop, droptop, T-top, Coupe; boots and bonnets, vintage leather and more; all with stories, all with history, all displayed against the lush backdrop of this breathtaking vineyard at the height of the growing season and here to revel in the aesthetic allure of vintage auto-motion.
They are the vehicles of our youth and of our parents’ youth, cars that made history, that drove us to adulthood, that captivated our hearts and have never let go. The Vintage Celebration is a day replete with extraordinary sights and once-in-a-lifetime photo moments, incredible picnic food, Primitive Culture live on the terrace 11a – 4p; outdoor wine service, family, friends and so much more.
Doors open to the public at 10 a.m. Pre-2001 vehicles of any make and model are welcome to register. Vintage clothing welcomed and encouraged. Please join us. It’s a day for making memories in a setting beyond compare.
