Winefest Des Moines will host a Behind the Blend Wine Flight event Dec. 9 with Michael Kennedy, founder of Component Wines in California’s Napa Valley. At Splash Seafood Bar and Grill downtown, Kennedy will walk patrons through what goes into creating Component’s petit verdot, cabernet sauvignon and merlot, all of which will be available for sampling.

Splash will provide cheese plates and chocolates to pair with the drinks. Tickets are $220 and on sale until Dec. 8. Get them fast—Winefest events typically sell out quickly.
