The Madison River Foundation is privileged to host a wine tasting this year at our ‘Catch the Hatch’ celebration. Not only is Withers Winery donating wines for our event, but they are also hosting a tasting of their delicious wines with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the MRF. Founded by Andrew Tow in 2013, The Withers Winery may be relatively new to the wine scene, but their wines have already been featured in the Wall Street Journal, received high praise (and a score of 91) from Vinous Media, have been selected as the Editor’s Choice from Wine Spectator and a Best Buy choice of the Wine Enthusiast! And because of Mr. Tow’s conservation values, Withers Winery is being certified as a B Corporation which requires the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance. B Corporations aspire to be the best for the world. We are fortunate indeed to have the support of such a fine, thoughtful and talented fly fishing member.
James VIII and the River Band
will be playing dance favorites
throughout the event!
Thank you to our generous major sponsors Willie’s Distillery, Madison Foods, Madison River Brewing Company and Wither’s Winery. Madison River Brewing Company will be serving their own Salmon Fly wheat beer, and Wither’s Winery will be present serving their red wines along with a wine tasting. Madison Foods graciously donated white wines from Montana wineries. All of these can be enjoyed from a MRF logo pint or wine glass that can be purchased at the event. If you need to set your drink down to go dance Willie’s Distillery donated the use of their whiskey barrel tables for the event.
