Prospective home buyers can sip wine while touring sales floor plans March 3 at a growing, upscale neighborhood west of Summerville.

Give credit to Kolter Homes at The Ponds, which is promoting the wine tasting event 6-8 p.m. Wines will be provided by The Wine Shop at Home and served by professional wine consultant Sandra Irving, the builder says. The tasting is at The Kolter Homes Welcome Center, 151 Village Ponds Drive in Summerville.

The public is invited to attend, and there is no admission charge. Reservations are requested and may be made by emailing Therese Munroe at tmunroe@kolter.com.

Along with the opportunity to meet community residents, visitors can take tours of open model homes at The Ponds. Kolter describes the event as a casual way to pick up design tips while enjoying food and drink.

“Get home decor ideas and become acquainted with The Ponds in a relaxed setting, complete with light hors d’oeuvres to tempt the palate and complement the sampling of the exclusive, artisan-blended wines,” the company says. Irving will provide tasting notes while father-and-son musical group Bob Williams Duo performs.

Kolter Homes says it’s “committed to building valued residences and in ‘creating better communities.’” The company says “home buyers don’t just purchase a home; they purchase a dream and a lifestyle.” Kolter Homes touts its design centers, which offer green builder options so that customers can take advantage of the newest energy efficient home options.
