For added fun, four winemakers will also be competing in a faux-episode of Food Networks hit show “Chopped.”   Ann Roncone of Lightning Ridge Cellars, Gary Reeves of the Village of Elgin, and Lori Reynolds of Sonoita Vineyards and Kief Manning of Kief-Joshua Vineyards will be competing and pouring tastes of their wines.  Perhaps more winemakers to come!
