They make great wine, but can they cook? It’s the event of the season – the one you’ve been waiting for all year… the 3rd Annual Iron Vintner Challenge! Four Woodinville winemakers square off in a head-to-head cooking competition. Over the course of three weeks in June, the competitors are put to the test to see who is the best cook and will ultimately be crowned 2012 Iron Vintner. Come root for your favorite winemaker as they get thrown into action out on the patio of Fireside Cellars. A portion of the proceeds benefit Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center.
