President’s Message June 1, 2017


New Beginnings

Spring is a season for new beginnings, planting grapes, fruit trees, vegetables and flowers all to be enjoyed in the fall. This is also a new beginning for me as president of the Wisconsin Vintners Association which is a position that I am very proud to hold. I have been a member since 2010, started making fruit wine and have progressed from there. Everything I have learned about wine making has been from club functions and the members. The Goal of the Club has always been to further the knowledge of the member to make the best wine they can and I will make sure that continues to be the Goal.

I hope, I can only hope to represent the position as good as the past president Don Betlej did. Don was a very dedicated member that worked relentlessly to ensure that every function the club held was done correctly and professionally. Next time you see Don please thank him for his service as the president of the Club. I will be relying on Don, the Board of Directors and the past Presidents to assist me and keep me on track in my duties as President. I encourage all members to get involved in the club. The club is only as good as its members and we have about 350 great members.
