Winefest 2014

Winefest is proud to have been a part of the Greater Des Moines area since 2003 and we look forward to our 12th year of celebrating fine food and wine while bettering the community. We hope you'll join us. The Des Moines Wine Festival Foundation is a publicly supported 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation and its signature event, Winefest, has grown into one of Des Moines' most anticipated weekends of the year. In addition to supporting the wine and culinary industry, Winefest has raised nearly $375,000 for local charities and cultural organizations. In addition to celebrating the chefs in our own backyard, Winefest has welcomed several celebrities over the years including Eric Ripert, Lidia Bastianich, Doug Frost, Art Smith, Fritz Maytag and Bill Niman.

We feel that unique events such as Winefest help to improve our community's cultural landscape and help to earn Des Moines its national accolades for quality of life. Come raise a glass to that... cheers!
