John Ernest Winery from Tama entered its Blueberry Rhubarb Wine in the wine judging contest at Manchester's Annual Rhubarb Fest and received the Honorable Mention designation.
Fest Director, Jack Klaus, mentioned how the crowd responded to the various rhubarb wines and how each wine had its own group of advocates. We award prizes in the People Choice category and the Judges Panel category and in each case the Blueberry Rhubarb Wine from John Ernest had supporters. "Just a very tasty wine", said Klaus.
The annual Rhubarb Fest is held the first Saturday of June each year at Baum Park in Manchester and features a craft show, food contests, activities for the kids, a 5K/1K Run/Walk, a Bike Ride and other activities.
