REMINDER: The Poverty Bay Virtual Wine Festival will be this Saturday, July 25, 2020, from 4 – 8 p.m. on Facebook live.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year the event – usually held in person with lots of social mingling and sipping – had to be revamped, so organizers are going virtual.

During the event, there will be up to 12 wineries showing off their wines. Then you can reserve/purchase those wines on a website so you can then pick them up from the winery.

30% of the sales will be split between beneficiaries of Destination Des Moines and the Rotary Club of Des Moines/Normandy Park.

Keep an eye out for the Facebook live post on July 25 at 4 p.m. and a link to the website to reserve/purchase your wine.

Some of the wineries are:

    • Love That Red Winery
    • Moose Canyon Winery
    • Long Cellars
    • Nota Bene Cellars
    • Patterson Cellars
    • Cedar River Cellars
    • Elsom Cellars
    • Palouse Winery

Thank you to all the wineries, sponsors, volunteers and community members that made this event possible.
