here.  Hundreds of wines are poured throughout the four day event, including the Vintner Dinner, the Bordeaux Grand Cru Dinner, the Wine & Rosecliff Gala, Newport after Dark, a Jazz Brunch, the two Grand Tastings and the Seminars.  You can pick one or pick them all.  If you pick them all we strongly suggest a designated driver!

We’ll be covering the event in depth as usual, and hopefully will see you there.  For those who are starting to think about planning a weekend getaway later this year, you might want to consider this festival.  It is one of our favorite weekends of the year.

You can read more about the event on their website at  The list of participating wineries, restaurants and other vendors will continue to grow, so check back periodically.

A votre santé!
