I needed a little Wine Time before the summer ends so this past weekend I went to a wine festival in Geneva, Illinois. This was my second time attending the Geneva Festival of the Vine. It was busier then ever with oenophiles enjoying chocloate, spice, and peach and yoghurt wines.
For the last couple of years I've been wanting to go to the Nouveau Wine Festival in Galena, Illinois but haven't gotten a chance to. This year it's the weekend of November 16-17, 2012.
Some other wine festivals across the U.S. include:
Naples Winter Wine Festival Florida - January
Nantucket Wine Festival Massachusetts - May
Wine and Food Festival National on the Harbor Waterfront in Maryland - May
Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival Winchester, CA - end of May/early June
Finger Lakes Wine Festival New York - July
Hawaii Food and Wine Festival - September
Snowmass Wine Festival Colorado - September 14 - 15, 2012
