The German beer was flowing and the bratwurst sizzling during Bel Vino’s Oktoberfest on Friday, Oct. 18. Attendees dressed in their finest lederhosen and dirndls to win prizes and battled each other during stein holding contests. Music was provided by the Kalifornia Krauts, providing authentic and Oktoberfest-popular tunes throughout the night. Refuge Brewery provided German Kohlsch for attendees and they waited patiently for authentic German bratwurst, hot off the grill. Bel Vino wine was available all evening long inside the tasting room. It was the first-ever Oktoberfest event to held at the winery.
