Preview of the Greenwich Wine and Food festival, Sept 23-26

IMG_0918September is fast approaching, and that means wine and food festivals.  We’ve been previewing the Newport Mansions event, but let’s not forget about the Greenwich Wine and Food Festival, which happens in Greenwich, CT in late September.  This is really more of a food event than a wine one, but there are plenty of wines and other beverages on display.  We met Shaw greenwich logo on bagVineyard there last year as well as the wines from Quintessential.  If you are a foodie this is really a great event, with lots of chefs, demonstrations and restaurants, as well as the annual burger battle.

There is one major drawback this year however, and that is both the Greenwich and Newport events happen on the same weekend.  You could do Greenwich on Saturday and the Sunday Grand Tasting in Newport if you really must see both.  That actually sounds like a pretty fun weekend.

Greenwich also has other events going on leading up to the weekend.

Here’s the press release on the Innovative Chefs Gala with more info:
