From the first taste of wine to the last sip of port, Wine Lovers Weekend 2009 was a memorable event. Participants
expanded their wine knowledge, broaden their palatte and savored fine wines and whiskeys. Each program and dinner was carefully planned by The Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel and Galena's finest family of restaurants.
