Hello fellow winemakers,

I hope you’re all having a great summer so far. Time is flying by and we’re less than 4 weeks away from Winefest 2019. Our wine entry registration system is up and ready to go. Wines can now be entered into the competition via the following website: http://bewbc.org/winefest/. All winemakers must register before entering wines.

I encourage all members, beginner and seasoned winemakers, to please help sustain this unique experience by entering your wines into this year’s competition. We are so fortunate to have this special opportunity to receive feedback on our wines from industry professionals. While we always strive for a diverse slate of judges, new this year is an increased focus on commercial winemakers as judges. We are fortunate to have a couple more former club members with commercial wineries joining us this year! Many of the judges will be staying for the potluck, so come and make them feel welcome.

John Bell                               Former club member, Winemaker Willis Hall

Regina Daigneault              Certified sommelier and Wine Scholar Guild

Steve Foisie                          Longtime member of BEWBC and wine educator

Tracey LaPierre                    Owner and enologist for Seattle Wine Lab 

Chuck Jackson                    Former club member, Winemaker Skagit Crest Winery

Tim Narby                              Former club member, Winemaker Nota Bene 

 

Don’t have any wines to enter? Please join us to taste and appreciate the wines made by the club. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions, learn, and share ideas on wine making.

If you would like to help out in making this year’s Winefest another outstanding event, please give me a call or drop me an email. The help is always welcome. This is an excellent opportunity to get involved in your club. We’re especially looking for someone proficient in Excel who could help us behind the scenes during the judging process.

I look forward to seeing you and tasting your wines this summer!

Cheers,

Jon Barbour
