Thanks to Natural State Wines of Columbus along with Mickey Dunne of Badger Mountain Wines. And, as always, to Bob and Monica at Riverside Wine and Imports for the opportunity to cater these events.

Mickey mentioned that since 2001, Badger Mountain has been fining and filtering their wines with non-animal based methods -- so they're both organic and vegan!
