Midwest Wine Expo 2011


About yesterday’s Midwest Wine Expo: A big thank you to the suppliers, restaurants, speakers and pourers for making everything run so well. Thanks to Matt Ulery’s Gaslight for supplying the jazz. And of course, a huge thank you is due to all of you who came out to spend a Sunday afternoon tasting a few wines with us. You make this thing a continuing success.

We’re looking for your feedback. Every year we try to make this event the best it can be, so leave a comment below. More feedback = better Expo. Oh yeah, if you have any better pictures, feed us some links. I’m not a great photographer.

Hope to see you at the MWE next year. And at Binny’s Beverage Depot a bunch of times before then, of course.
