Event Recap: Annual Wine Club BBQ 2022

After a 3 year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we were finally able to host our Annual Wine Club BBQ, and what a fantastic time we had! A big thank you to everyone who was able to join us on this amazing weekend of May 20-22!

It was so great to see so many club members and guests, and share lots of our wines with you. Despite having limited tables due to social distancing, we were able to host 80 guests on Friday, 180 on Saturday and 160 Sunday! So many bottles of wines were opened by Jeff and the Runquist team. Though the original line up was 24 bottles of wine, we ended opening way more than that, and we loved it! We enjoyed great live music from Billy Bensing on Friday and Boomer Band on Saturday and Sunday. Lots of dancing from over the weekend!
