Pleasantly surprised by the quality of Kansas wine, De Soto City Administrator Patrick Guilfoyle envisioned an event where festivalgoers could purchase bottles from local vineyards. But Kansas law prevented such transactions. "Well, let's just change the law," Guilfoyle thought. Mission accomplished. The law change takes effect today, which is the same day as Winesong at Riverfest
, a celebration of Kansas wine. A $15 ticket includes 10 tastings (14 wineries are represented), appetizers from local farms and a souvenir glass. The event runs from 4 to 8 p.m. at Riverfest Park (33440 West 79th Street, De Soto). Call 913-689-8740 or see winesongatriverfest.com
