    • Croatian Hall

    This year's Winter Wine and Aged Wine Competitions will be held at the Croatian Hall. We will start with a short meeting at 7:00 pm, then start the judging.

    We will have 8 tables set up for the different categories which include:

    Any Red Grape, Non-Vinifera Red Grape, Any White Grape, Non-Vinifera White Grape, Berry Fruit, Non-Berry Fruit, Specialty Wines, and a separate table for the Aged Wines.

    Ribbons will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place, plus a special award for the Best in Show.

    Each table will have an assigned primary judge, and Members are invited to participate in the judging at any of the tables.

    This is a great opportunity to win bragging rights for your home winemaking skills, and also to hone your judging abilities.

    Unlike other General Meetings, Wine Evaluators will be available AFTER the competitions versus before the meeting.

    This is our annual Election meeting, where we elect Directors and Officers for the next club year (which starts in September).  Following the election (which is usually brief) we have a potluck dinner.  Please bring a dish to share, and your own picnic supplies (plates, flatware, wine glasses) as well as a bottle or two.

    We are also working with a vendor that may be available to show us their special wine pumping system. Stay tuned for more details.

    • To be Determined

    We are working on securing a wine tasting from a local wine shop owner. In the past they have brought wines from some of their more exclusive selections for us to evaluate and purchase.

    We are coordinating with Midwest Supplies in St. Louis Park to use their warehouse space.

    We will keep you posted on our progress.

    This year's Nouveau and Rhubarb Wine Competitions will be held at the Croatian Hall. We will start with a short meeting at 7:00 pm, then start the judging. The meeting date was delayed due to scheduling conflicts at the Hall.

    We will have 7 tables set up for the different categories which include:

    Any Red Grape, Non-Vinifera Red Grape, Any White Grape, Non-Vinifera White Grape, Berry Fruit, Non-Berry Fruit, and Specialty Wines.  The Rhubarb wines will be judged separately before the meeting starts.

    Ribbons will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place, plus a special award for the Best in Show.

    Each table will have an assigned primary judge, and Members are invited to participate in the judging at any of the tables.
