The sixth annual Lincoln Wine Fest was a great success with fun for all! The Rotary Club of Lincoln, in partnership with the Downtown Lincoln Association, sponsored the festival. 

Joanne Hilton, a Lincoln Rotary Club member, organized the annual festival.

When the Art League of Lincoln needed volunteers to pour, Fran and Frank Neves jumped right in to help out by pouring wine. 

Dono dal Cielo Vineyard and Winery was well represented by Raquel Johnson with crew of Jodi Ashby, Vanessa Loque and Kerry Powell. This is one of the outstanding wineries in Placer County. Their venue was the Lincoln Gun Exchange.

Co-owner and wine maker Tom Farinha of Cante Ao Vinho winery poured his Portuguese-inspired delicious wines at Sierra Hills Framing Shop. Tom Jones is the owner and shown here with Tom, Chuck and Diane Gebhardt, Wine Fest guests.

Volunteers David Bonillo and Truman Rich, along with Jennifer Guttman and Stacy Henrikson, poured wine by the glass in the Wine Fest Wine Garden.

Beermann’s Brewery, Double Barrel Smokehouse, Buonarotti’s Ristorante, Dillian’s Bar & Grill, Awful Annie’s and Country Harvest were among the many open for tasting of wine and food!

What fun it was for 17 local wineries serving up samples!
