This year we would like to see each one of you and your families participate. Dennis and Page Campbell will host the Winefest 2016. Mark your calendars and bring your family to see how your wines fared against your peers and what the professional judges thought of your wine. This will be a great gathering for the BEWBC/BEEWBC members. If you only made beer this year, this will be a great place to get the wine guys to expand their horizons by sharing some of your brew.
