Midwest Winefest is right around the corner and this week I will tell you all about this great event with the help of some special guests.

First up is Rita Faries of Standard Beverage, the founding sponsor of the Winefest.  We’ll be talking about all the fun to be had at this years event.  The Old Town Walkabout is of course sold out once again so I hope you are one of the lucky ones to have tickets in hand.  There are still seats available at the American Institute of Wine & Food Wine Makers Dinners and the Grand Tasting.

We’ll tell you all about the Grand Tasting, the live and silent auctions, the food, the wine and more! www.midwestwinefest.com

In the second half I’ll be talking to two special guests who will be in Wichita for The Winefest and hosting wine dinners on Friday April 20th.

Violet Grgich is the daughter of Miljenko “Mike” Grgich and Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Grgich Hills winery.


Sean Roney is the son of Pat Roney, Vintner and proprietor of Napa’s Girard Vineyards.   We’ll give you an overview of each winery, products produced and wines being poured at the dinners and a brief overview of each menu.


Good Life Guy’s Wine of the Week:
2009 Girard “Artistry”

The 2009 Artistry has aromas of toasted hazelnuts and festive Christmas spices. Boysenberries and currants saturate the palate aside flavors of exotic bing cherries. Well-structured tannins.

Blend: 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 11% Petite Verdot, 10% Merlot, 8% Malbec round out this vintage with a beautiful, tobacco and spice finish.
