Historically, the Native Americans who lived in the eastern United States kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to the recurring full moons.
As we pass through the winter months, people can join Shank's Mare, 2092 Long Level Road, Wrightsville, for programs scheduled around the full moon.
Participants will take a guided, brisk winter hike in the late afternoon as they spot the rising moon. Back at Shank's Mare, they take part in a unique tasting for the evening followed by dinner in The Rookery.
Wolf Moon hike, tasting and dining will be hosted by Allegro Vineyards, 4-9 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26. Attendees will explore the Native Lands Trail, taste wines by Allegro Vineyards and have dinner in The Rookery. Allegro owners Carl Helrich and Kris Miller grow seven varieties of grapes on six acres of vineyards in Brogue.
The fee is $41 and includes the hike, tasting and dinner.
