From September 21 – 23, 2012, Newport Mansions will host its 7th Annual Wine & Food Festival. This year, the Rosecliff and Marble House will welcome in more than 100 world-renowned vintners, in addition to 24 of New England’s premier chefs to dazzle guests at the festival. Long touted as one of the East Coast’s premier events, the Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival is not to be missed.
Headlining the festival this year are chefs Jacques Pépin and first-time festival participant Emeril Lagasse. Chef Jacques Pépin and daughter Claudine will be hosting the Grand Tasting on Saturday, while Lagasse will host the Grand Tasting on Sunday. The two will also do cooking demonstrations and book signings at the festival.
In addition to these two celebrity chefs, there will be opportunities to sit in on seminars with leading wine experts and cooking demonstrations from top chefs.
Other events during the weekend include silent and live auctions and the Wine & Rosecliff gala celebration. Prepare your taste buds and book a trip to this spectacular event this fall! For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit the Newport Mansions website.
