The weekend kicks-off with a special reception Friday evening. Featured chefs will conduct an in-house presentation of Amuse-Bouche, a sampling of each chef's cooking artistry, all paired with the perfect wine to arouse the palate.
Saturday once again features a Grand Tasting, with hundreds of wines available to sample. A silent auction is also slated for Saturday. Last year's auction included a wide range of items from locally created pieces of art and jewelry to exotic vacations.
More than 1,000 people attended last year's tasting, which also includes a seminar schedule covering a variety of topics presented by wine experts. **A Grand Tasting ticket must accompany any seminar ticket
The Gourmet Dinner is a treat for the senses, featuring carefully selected wines with each course. As each course is served, the weekend's emcee introduces the dish and the wine, explaining the interplay between the two and why each wine was selected. The dinner is one of the most eagerly anticipated aspects of the week.
The weekend closes with an amazing brunch Sunday morning. Featuring complimentary beverages and a feast of breads, sweets and meats, the brunch is a perfect way to close an extraordinary weekend of new discoveries.
