Another Reason To Attend Poverty Bay Wine Fest: Win A 9-Liter Bottle Of Wine!
A very unique 9-liter bottle of Five Star Cellars 2006 Cabernet Savignon will be raffled off at the Poverty Bay Wine Festival next weekend (Saturday, March 6th & Sunday, March 7th) at the historic Landmark Event Center in Des Moines.
This one-of-a-kind, big, beautiful bottle contains nine liters â€“ equal to a full case of wine (!) â€“ and is engraved with the Poverty Bay Wine Festival emblem on one side, and the Five Star label on the other.
This 2006 Cab was rated 91 points by Wine Spectator and 94 points by the Beverage Tasting Institute â€“ that means it’s an excellent case of wine in one big bottle!
No purchase is necessaryâ€“ this is a drawing for anyone who wants to enter â€“ but you will have to show up at the festival, which is just $20 per person; for that amount, you’ll also receive a souvenir wine glass and 10 tokens, a sampling of delicious foods, and live music both days.
Also, for all you non-wine drinkers out there, Pike’s Brewing will also have a booth.
The value of the wine plus the engraving is $1,000!
The opening night Gala will be this Friday, March 5th at 7:30pm at the Landmark Event Center. The theme is A Night in the Vineyard. A lavish buffet will be provided by Anthonyâ€™s HomePort. Tickets for the gala are $75 in advance, $85 at the door. The ticket price includes food, entertainment, and wine.
