Bellingham Northwest Wine Festival a Huge Success!

 The 4th annual Bellingham Northwest Wine Festival was held Saturday, August 10, 2019 at the Four Points by Sheraton Grand Ballroom.

The Festival included both a public wine tasting and the announcement of all medal-winning wines entered in an earlier judged competition. This year's event featured  55 wineries from the Pacific Northwest along with eight restaurants from the Whatcom County area, including Leader Block Wine Co. & Eatery! We were featured in the VIP Lounge area and served delicious appetizers prepared by Chef Justin Oberg. The evening was an unprecedented success!
