Hy-Vee Food & Wine

* Even if, or especially if, you don’t know your Cabernet from your Chardonnay, you should really consider checking out Hy-Vee’s Wine and Food Experience festival next month. The event is Saturday, Feb. 5, from 1-6 p.m. at the DC Centre, 11830 Stonegate Circle. You’ll be able to sample practically every wine Hy-Vee carries, the vast majority of which retail for under $20, with many under $15. Not only that, but in many cases you’ll get to talk to representatives from many of the wineries. You’ll also get to sample some special selections Hy-Vee doesn’t normally stock, as well as specialty foods and cheeses from over 75 booths. It’s $35 in advance and $40 at the door. That may sound a little steep, but you’ll get a tasting glass you can keep as well as a crash course in wine. If that’s not enough of a reason, all the proceeds from the event will be donated to local charities. You can get tickets at the Customer Service counter at your local Hy-Vee.
