Every fall the Lakes Region wineries collaborate to bring you this fun and exciting event. Each winery invites their guests to taste young wines directly from the oak and stainless steel barrels that are used to ferment and age their wine in. Not only will it be a unique opportunity to taste wine in the early stages of its development, visitors will be able to meet the wine makers, tour the wine making facilities, and learn all about the wine making process. In addition, there will be local vendors offering special foods and wine-related items, music, and door prizes at many of the wineries.
For those who visit more than one of the participating wineries that weekend, there will be chances to win generous prizes donated by local businesses valued at thousands of dollars.
This event is held every fall on the weekend before Columbus Day.
