Upcoming Event: New Orleans Wine & Food Experience

In just two weeks, the New Orleans Wine & Food Experience will kick off in the Big Easy with more than 175 wineries from around the world and 75 of the city's best restaurants on hand for several days of tastings, dinners, tours and seminars. On Wednesday, May 26, the festivities will begin with a series of wine dinners taking place at restaurants across New Orleans. Then, on Thursday comes the Vinola Tasting & Auction as well as the Royal Street Stroll, a fun opportunity to shop the galleries of Royal Street while sampling wines at each stop. In addition to a full line-up of seminars covering everything from Rhone-style California wines to farmstead cheeses, Friday and Saturday will feature the Grand Tastings with hundreds of wines from around the world and lots of great food.

If you live in or around Nola, or you're planning to be visiting, you won't want to miss this event. It's always a great time and happens during one of the best times of year in New Orleans. For more info and to purchase tickets, click here.
