WineFest June 2-10

Above: Take time to chill at WineFest Week, starting Saturday, June 2.

WineFest pops the cork on its 16th annual series of events, once again raising funds as well as fun. Tickets are still available to most of the week’s events, from sips and tastings to grand dinners. You can see the full lineup here. The fundraising aspect is less obvious but no less important: Last year alone, WineFest presented $25,000 to Bravo Greater Des Moines (which in turn allocates funds to local organizations) and provided scholarships to students of food and wine careers. We can raise a glass to that!
