Island Wines Showcase

Following the conference, from 6:00 to 9:00, you are invited to stay for the Island Wines Showcase, combining a delicious appetizer buffet prepared by the Ramada with a very wide-ranging selection of wines made from 100% Wine Islands grapes. There will be at least 20 local wineries represented, with their wines arranged by category at tasting stations where you will be served 1-oz pours of your choice. It’s a great opportunity for WIGA members to enjoy and discuss the state of our industry – we think you’ll agree with us that our Wine Islands growers and wine-makers are continuing to raise the bar! The cost for the Showcase is only $35 pp, which includes food, wine, tax, and gratuity – an excellent value.
