By all accounts, the 2nd annual Bellingham Northwest Wine Festival was a huge success. Over 400 attendees filled the Grand Ballroom of the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel on August 5, 2017 and were treated to an incredible array of good food and excellent wines.

null31 gold medals and 6 double golds (unanimous gold honors by the panel’s five judges) were also awarded during the evening. Winthrop Washington’s Lost River Winery earned Best in Show honors for its 2013 Merlot.
