We are requiring a minimum of five winemakers confirmed to participate in order to host these events around the state, so feel free to invite your neighboring winery colleagues! To secure your spot, complete the wine submission/registration form by February 27, 2018.
Winemakers are highly encouraged to bring one or both of the selected wine varietals produced at your winery. You will be asked to share as much information about the history of the wines through submission of the registration form detailing the winemaking production information on the wines.
All information will be kept confidential unless the group agrees to disclose their wines at the conclusion of the event. This form must be completed by February 27, 2018 to secure your registration. Registration is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.
This Iowa Winemaker's Roundtable Workshop is taking place at Soldier Creek Winery, located at 1584 Paragon Ave., Fort Dodge, Iowa 50501. There is plenty of parking available at the winery.
