We are in unprecedented times and our restaurants need our support now more than ever. While we cannot be together in person, we want to help our incredible wine and food community in Des Moines and keep them as busy as we can. So we bring to you, Virtual Wine Flights.
Here’s the deal - Winefest has partnered with local restaurants to bring you a fabulous meal and delectable wine pairing to enjoy at home while social distancing. Stop by the restaurant for pickup by 5:00 on the day of the Virtual Wine Flight. Come home and at 6:00, join us on Facebook Live for a description and Q&A with a Sommelier.
