The Portage County Business Council is excited to host the 16th Annual Wines of the World event on Friday, October 20, 2017.
Join us that evening from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Convention Center, 1001 Amber Avenue, Stevens Point, WI, for an international journey as we sample a selection of wines from around the world featured by The Bottle Stop, including Stevens Point local - Sunset Point Winery. A taste-tempting array of fine cuisine prepared by the Holiday Inn Hotel & Convention Center and Rockman's Catering, fine Wisconsin artisan cheeses, along with some imports by Ski's Meat Market, a silent auction, a beer bar by the Stevens Point Brewery, handcrafted spirits from Great Northern Distilling, and soft live jazz music will complement the evening.  
Also, assorted craft beers and bourbon tastings!

This event will provide an opportunity for guests to network, socialize and have fun learning about wine. Those in attendance will have a chance to win fabulous door prizes including a Unique Dining Experience for 6 (catered dinner for 6 people in the privacy of your home with Private Chef - Scott Rockman, owner of Rockman's Catering). One lucky winner will also go home with this stunning 14K White Gold Pendant holding 5 Round Brilliant Diamonds with a 14KT White Gold Box Chain valued at $2,750 donated by Lee Ayers Jewelers and Thomas Dailing Designs; and masterfully hand-created by Internationally recognized jewelry designer Thomas Dailing.
