Dinner Dance

The annual WVA Dinner Dance takes place on the first Saturday of February and is the only WVA fundraiser of the year.  Proceeds from this event are used to finance many of the club’s yearly activities.

Club Competition

Every year the club has a wine competition which takes place in March.  This event provides an opportunity for a member to obtain the WVA judges’ opinion on the quality of his wine and hopefully the feedback will be used for future improvement.

Wine Seminar

Wine Seminar
The club has developed winemaking classes to help teach new members the basics of home winemaking and to improve intermediate winemaker’s talents with information about more advanced techniques and equipment.

WI State Fair

State Fair
The WI State Fair Amateur Winemaking Competition is conducted every year in May and is sponsored by our club.

Food & Wine Pairing

Food & Wine Pairing
An annual fun event where a flight of wines is matched with various types of food.  Learn what food and wine combinations are best or better avoided.

Harvest Dinner

Harvest Dinner
November is the month for our annual WVA Harvest Dinner.  It’s always an enjoyable evening with good food and good wine (you’ll bring your best to show it off).
