Little Music, Little Wine, And A Little Gal Time

Raised in Rapid City and lucky to call it home, this outdoor enthusiast loves to explore the Black Hills with her husband and two dogs. When she’s not at work you’ll find her out hiking, at a local ice cream shop, or perhaps home taking a nap.

There are very few things in my life that can’t be fixed after a night of a little music, a little wine and a little gal time. And I know I’m not the only one – I’m looking at you. It’s time to sit back, relax and have a good time with your friends or family. One of the best ways to do it while in Rapid City is with a night out at Firehouse Wine Cellars.   

On Friday and Saturday nights, Rapid City’s only local winery, Firehouse Wine Cellars host’s what they call Cellar Sessions. During these events artists fill the relaxed atmosphere of the wine cellar with their music which ranges from soothing piano to acoustic melodies. All performers are extremely talented, but my favorite is an acoustic guitar singer who plays a stunning version of “La Vie En Rose”. I get the chills every time I hear her play it.

Now that you’re being sweetly serenaded, it’s time for a little wine. Firehouse Wine Cellars offers a great selection of locally crafted red and white wines. Choose from an assortment of sweet or dry wines, or if it’s your first time visiting then I would highly suggest a wine tasting. You can sample six different options for only five dollars and the knowledgeable staff will help you make selections based on your taste preference. This is also a great option if you’re indecisive like myself. However - with names like Badlands, Prairie Flower, Stargazer and Rushmore Riesling it’s hard not to want to try them all. As a lover of reds, my go-to is Book Club.
