BG Wine & Cheese Event A Great Success
The wine for the event was generously donated by Norm Heineman and Bowling Green Beverage (shown in the photo with his wife Kathy behind him). Many comments were made that the selection of 12 different wines made this a truly adventureous and fun night. There were some standouts in the line-up, including the Lyeth Red Meritage and the Schild Estate Shiraz. Norm, not sparing any expense, also served up some Pelee Island Winery Vidal Icewine. This retails for about $42 a half-bottle, so it truly was like sipping liquid gold.
Assisting the foundation with this event were the Exchange Club of Bowling Green along with the local Kiwanis and Rotary groups. Their participation certainly helped with the strong turnout and smooth operation.
