New Orleans is known for its food and drink. In celebration of this long running association, the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience showcases many of the city’s most revered culinary haunts. This year’s event takes place from April 3 to 7 and is a city wide experience.
If sampling a variety of unique dishes and wines is your thing, then this event is for you. More than 100 restaurants are set to take part in the festival and over 250 wineries will be exhibited.
Special vintner dinners are one of the highlights of the festival. Hosted by winery representatives (a different winery is featured at each event), these dinners involve a wine pairing with each food course. Chefs and wine experts will be on hand to educate the crowd about the pairings.
Those who want to take things up a notch and add in a little shopping too will love the Royal Street Experience. Participants get to wander along the famed street, browse the galleries, shop, and savor the food and wine offerings at the tents along the way. In all, there will be 40 different wines featured and a wide variety of spectacular food.
True foodies should be sure to check out a grand tasting, which will feature dishes from a wide range of New Orleans’ finest restaurants, paired with wines from numerous producers. During the festival’s run there will also be a variety of wine related seminars led by experts in the business.
Tickets for the various events can be purchased separately or as part of a VIP package or bundle.
