      MENASHA - Sunday's seasonable weather provided a great scene for the Fox Valley WineFest and Craft Show in Menasha.

      Wine lovers gathered to taste wine from more than 10 Wisconsin wineries.

      People could also buy their favorite ones.

      And it wasn't just drink, the event also featured crafters and artists offering woodworking, jewelry and more.

      Organizers say the event is a great way to get a little taste of the wine before buying.

      "They can sample, and then if they like it, they can buy it. It's always nice when they can sample the wine and then make a purchase because if you don't like that one, you can pick a different one," said organizer Edna DeWitt.

      DeWitt, along with her husband, have run a WineFest in Watertown for 10 years.

      She says she's always wanted to bring one to the Fox Valley.

      This is the first one in the Menasha area.
