WineAddicts.com Best of 2009
Welcome to the third year of our WineAddicts.com awards.

Best Private Tasting at a Winery
Behrens & Hitchcock threw a fabulous summer event with all the usual wine pourings. While light on parking they have invested in the outside tasting area: patios, lawn and gazebo along with catering that paired nicely with all those reds. Should be another regular fixture on our calendar.

Best New Winery Visited
White Rock Vineyards
