Feb 28-29, 2020

It would be great to see 10-12 of our member wineries there pouring wine. We'll create "Destination Wine Road". Click to download the details for this event. There is a Rare & Reserve Tasting on Friday night and Grand Tasting on Saturday. Wine Road will also be coordinating two seminars for trade and press on Friday morning. One on Sparkling wine and, to be determined, based on who is attending. Wine Road will reimburse $175 for any winery attending the festival.  Details and Registration HERE. Questions, contact the organizer, David Fraschetti
