It was glorious weather but, then again, it always is. Our weekend in Newport for the Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival was capped with the Grand Tasting on Saturday at Marble House.
Of course there is wine (that flows freely) and always a new vintage, vineyard and blend to discover. There is also plenty of food to sample. Like lobster.
And meat. Since Dole & Bailey became one of the major sponsors there is lots of grilled seafood and meat. It may be the most popular spot at the event.
What we enjoy the most, however, are the people, the chance to meet new friends from all over the country and world. There are couples traveling together for an exciting weekend, the young lovers scoping out possible wedding venues, the wine-lovers, the mansions-lovers and the usual assortment of beautiful people.
Chef Jeremy Kean of Brassica Kitchen.
Of course there are the chefs, many of which have the opportunity to demo how they prepare a dish against the stunning backdrop of Newport.
Finish it all off with live music and all kinds of food product samples from candy to coffee and lots of laughter and great conversation and you have all of the reasons that we attend this event every year. And you should, too.
So, here is the best news of all: our readers now have the chance to purchase tickets for the 2020 events and LOCK IN THE 2019 PRICES. That's right, if your purchase your tickets by December 25, 2019 you will avoid any price increases. Of course, we all know how the price of everything is going up, especially imported goods.
