About Us:

Winefest is proud to have been a part of the Greater Des Moines area since 2003 and we look forward to our thirteenth year of celebrating fine food and wine while bettering the community. We hope you'll join us.

The Des Moines Wine Festival Foundation is a publicly supported 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation and its signature event, Winefest, has grown into one of Des Moines' most anticipated weekends of the year. Besides supporting the wine and culinary industry, Winefest has raised nearly $400,000 for local charities and cultural organizations. We've even attracted top names in the culinary world, including people like Eric Ripert, Lidia Bastianich, Art Smith, Fritz Maytag, Rossetto Kasper and Doug Frost, who is one of only three people in the world to hold both titles of Master Sommelier and Master of Wine.

Unique events such as Winefest help to improve our community's cultural landscape and help to earn Des Moines its national accolades for quality of life.
