Bel Air, MD, October 20, 2017 – The Rockfield Foundation, Inc. hosted the 12th Annual Harford County Wine Festival on the grounds at Rockfield Manor on September 30, 2017. This year’s festival, spearheaded by Chairperson Donna M. Dickey, was a huge success with over 3000 wine enthusiasts in attendance.

“The success of this year’s festival can be attributed to the combined efforts of the Rockfield Foundation Board of Directors, Director of Operations Kellee Kalthof, and the Harford County Wine Festival committee. The many months of work by this great team made the 12th Annual Harford County Wine Festival the most successful in its history. The planning for next year’s festival has already begun, and we have plans for some new and exciting additions to the outstanding offerings for the 2018 festival” says Donna M. Dickey.

Attendees this year enjoyed popular wine tastings; the Sam Adams Oktoberfest Beer Garden, a variety of food trucks; over 60 arts and craft vendors; and live music entertainment provided by Jah Works and The Klassix.

A portion of the 2017 proceeds benefited five local non-profit organizations including the Chesapeake Cancer Alliance, Toys for Tots, Bel Air Police Department’s Explorers, Bel Air Fire Department, and John Carroll High School.
