The 10th edition of the festival features culinary artistry from pastries to pasta, wines from around the world, and 11 educational seminars teaching participants about wines, cocktails, spirits, and sake. Certified sommeliers will teach the skills of choosing the perfect bottle for the perfect occasion and the perfect meal.

All beer, wine, and spirit seminars are priced at $55; the pairing seminaries are $85. A Grand Tasting Experience with a champagne reception, three flights of wine, and a chef’s table menu with executive chef Daniel Herman is available on Saturday, November 9th, at 2 p.m. and costs $300 per person.
