Homecare and Hospice Holds 14th Annual Flint Hills Festival of Wines

Festival of Wines

Home care and Hospice put on its 14th annual Flint Hills Festival of Wines over the weekend. The event included a Dinner and Live Auction on Friday, and two separate tastings on Saturday, followed by a Silent Auction. Christina Nolte, Home Care and Hospice Director of Development, calls the event a great success.

The Grand Tasting on Saturday featured over 200 different wines and spirits available for tasting, while a private tasting room featured 9 highly rated wines, a champagne, a well aged single malt scotch, and a cognac.

According to Nolte, Friday’s Live Auction brought in close to $20,000 which is nearly $5,000 more than the annual average.

The private tasting room was sponsored by Nespor’s Wine and Spirits and Catered by Four Olives.  All of the hors d’oeuvres , wine, spirits, and Cognac served in the private room were not available on Friday, or during Saturday’s Grand Tasting events.
