“I want to thank ALL the folks that attended our bottle show and wine tasting/BBQ event. We had right at 100 guests for our Friday night event and plenty of traffic all day Saturday during the bottle show.
Once again thanks to all of you that support our annual Downieville bottle show and hope to see all of you next year”
