    2012 Int'l Wine & Food Festival in DC?

    Anyone KKF members going to this (Feb 11/12)?

    They don't have a list of booths up yet, but I'm hoping to find a company I may know and volunteer to help out on one or both days.

    The Finger Lakes, Developing into a World Class Wine Producing Region
    The graceful vine covered slopes overlooking the picturesque Finger Lakes of upstate New York are amongst the oldest vineyards in the country. In the past decade the region has undergone an evolution in quality and is garnering much deserved recognition. Those beautiful Finger Lakes vineyards are now recognized as one of North America’s most exciting wine regions and earning international praise for its outstanding Rieslings. Join Morgen McLaughlin, president and CEO of Finger Lakes Wine Country, for a discussion and tasting of wines from the region. Learn about the early history of grape growing and why the Finger Lakes region has an ideal terroir for cool climate grape varieties such as Riesling, several examples of which will be sampled along with other standouts.
