Where Wine Makers and Grape Growers Share Their Knowledge

2005 WinePress.US WineFest Denver, Colorado
The First Annual 2005 Wine Press Wine Fest Photos  as I can get them uploaded

I will be adding an extremely large amount of photos here shortly once I can get them from everyone for the event.   I'll have thumbnails so it's easier and quicker downloading to preview the photos.  Cheers, Joel

Put a name with a face if you can....  



 I'll be sending off the comment sheets once I receive the medals, which have to be made. 

Congratulations to all who entered, as we had 140 entries. I personally didn't get to taste them all afterwards, but I did get to try a few, and they were great! I really enjoyed looking at everyone's labels on their bottles. 

Congrats again, and thanks to Tim Vandergrift for being our head judge. Stephanie McManus, Julie Morse and even Brad Ring from WineMaker Magazine was also a judge.  I'll get a list of the other judges soon.
