Jasper Winery : 2013 Release Party

FREE food and wine and beer. Yes please.

Japser Winery held it’s annual Release Party tonight from 6-9. I arrived shortly after 6 and the place was already busy.

Took about 20 min to get to the first tasting station. But we got to listen to good music by Tony Williams while we waited. (iamtw.com)

Food and wine/beer pairings, starting with La Crescent paired with Milton Creamery Prairie Breeze white cheddar. Can I just say, “I love cheese!”?


Next a bit of bruschetta from Private Client Catering. 

Jasper released their new tasty reds tonight. 

Wait salmon in a tiny cup? When in Polk county….

A few tastings in…is this Gusto Pizza? 

Last station was Sparkling Coffee - Champagne and beer? no thanks…

Many more stations with tasty food and beverages all for a very low price of free, I’d say the Release Party was a success. Don’t expect to try everything quickly, but go with an attitude of mingling and absorb the sweet sounds and tastes.  www.jasperwinery.com Thank you!
