We are in unprecedented times and our restaurants and local shops 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. 

This one will be different and interactive! Here’s the deal – Winefest has partnered with the Cheese Bar and Illahe Vineyards to bring you an interactive cooking and cocktail class, wine dinner and BIRTHDAY PARTY – all while social distancing. It’s the Cheese Bar’s THIRD birthday and we want to celebrate in style, even if not together in person. Stop by the Cheese Bar between 4:00 – 5:00 on the day of the Virtual Wine Flight.
