Le Mars & Sioux City

Since its creation in 1994, the Wine and Roses Festival (changed to Wine & Chocolate Festival in 2011) has become not only a tradition, but also one of the most well attended philanthropic fundraisers in Siouxland.

The proceeds from the event are used to support the programs and services provided by the Alzheimer's Association including the 24/7 Helpline, area support groups, community education, community awareness, as well as state and federal public policy issues.

As always, the event will showcase world-renowned winemakers and their wines, enhanced with chocolate - meals that will not fail to delight your palate. Both events include an array of silent and live auction items.

LE MARS - August 13, 2020 - Held in Le Mars, IA at Willow Creek Golf Course, this event is accompanied with decadent chocolates and complimentary wines hand selected for the featured meal.  Enjoy the evening spent in the company of one-of-a-kind winemakers.
SIOUX CITY - August 14, 2020 - Held at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Dakota Dunes, this exquisite five-six course meal will be complemented by several wines personally selected and explained by the winemakers in attendance.  This one is sure to be a memorable evening!
