“When we plan Vinfest we set out to create a celebration that immerses our guests in an experience they won’t soon forget,” said Cellardoor’s owner, Bettina Doulton. “While we kick-off this year’s Vinfest with adinner dance that features the incredible Commodores, our Saturday and Sunday events are open to all ages and full of fun for everyone,” she added.
