The Virtual Poverty Bay Wine Festival – which will be held on Saturday, Mar. 27, 2021 – is a fundraiser to help the local beneficiaries and events of Destination Des Moines and the Rotary Club of Des Moines and Normandy Park.

This is also a great way to support local wineries.

This core part of this event will be a Facebook live event that will be shown on March 27 at 4 p.m. It will feature about 15 wineries who will give “virtual tastings” of their wines and tours of their wineries.

There will also be wine experts on hand, teaching about various aspects of viniculture in our area.
