By now, you have heard all about the amazing wineries to be featured at the Poverty Bay Wine Festival. And, yes , it’s true – we have 25 premier Northwest wineries featured this year, such as Five Star Cellars to Coyote Canyon Winery. But did you know that we also have some incredible eateries at the festival that are sure to make your mouth water?
Back by popular demand, is the Poverty Bay Bistro, which is operated by Rotarian Vince Koester, owner of Koester Landscape Management. Those who know Vince, know that his true passion is cooking. When asked why a man who has spent his life in commercial landscaping would want to manage , Vince replied “There is really nothing that pleases me more than making people happy through my cooking”. Vince can make a mean burger and is always on the lookout for the perfect burger! Some of the menu choices at the Poverty Bay Bistro will be grilled chicken salad, sauteed garlic prawns, beef stroganoff, a panini sandwiche and (of course!) a mean cheeseburger. All net proceeds from the restaurant will go to fund the charitable projects of the Rotary Club of Des Moines.
