Grape Crush Productions is hosting its annual Holiday Mingle Jingle at Kai Lin Art at 3096 Roswell Road on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 2- 6 p.m. Discover unique and inspired gifts at the holiday market, where local artists, gourmet purveyors and specialty stores will ensure that you’re able to check off everyone on your holiday shopping list – with a cocktail in hand!
Guests will sip and savor artisan wines from around the globe as well as sample craft beer and cocktails as they explore the offerings of local businesses at the holiday market and discover the latest must-haves and perfect gifts to ensure you’re at the top of everyone’s list. Kai Lin Art Gallery is Buckhead’s only contemporary art gallery and is located in Buckhead Village at 3096 Roswell Road, just three shops down from the Buckhead Theatre. This will be the final day to view the amazing photography showcased in the SNAP exhibit on, and guests will also have the opportunity to meet local artists showcasing their work at the Gallery. Those showcasing their work include film photography by the Dorn Brothers, layered compositions created on an iPhone by Karen Devine, SCAD graduate Patrick Heagney’s portraits in motion, Greg Noblin’s whimsical photographic illustrations and dramatic local landscapes by Rob Simmons.
Tickets are $15 in advance and may be purchased at www.minglejingle.eventbrite.com. The day of the event, a limited number of tickets will be available for purchase at the door for $20.
Guests can purchase raffle tickets for the opportunity to win art and wine themed prizes and giveaways, tickets to exciting local events such as Chefs in the City with Top Chef Just Desserts Heather Hurlbert on Dec. 8 and the Atlanta Winter Wine & Jazz Festival, restaurant and retail gift cards, and much more! Raffle tickets can be purchased online for $3 or for $5 at the door. Guests are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy for a chance to win a private, home wine tasting, valued at $500. The afternoon of seasonal shopping benefits Toys for Tots, whose mission is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and leaders.
Bringing this extra cheer to the holiday season are community partners: Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer, Savida Sangria, Sinless Cocktails and Winesellers, Ltd.
For the wine lovers in one’s life, turn to Grape Crush Productions for the perfect presents.

Whether they want a taste of wines from around the world, would like to focus on a particular region or compare wines from a particular grape, a tasting can be created to grant all wine wishes this holiday season. One’s home, office, clubhouse or venue of choice may be turned into a private winery for an evening or afternoon of discovering unique wines with friends, family or co-workers.
