To compliment your wine experience we have gathered a wide selection of artisans and regional craftspeople. With a large selection of handcrafted items available everyone is sure to find something that will compliment their style. What is a wine tasting without food, we will be grilling some tasty food to enjoy with your wine. Free Wine & Food seminars, a leading expert in this field will conduct three free seminars of wine and food pairings.  She will help you pair the new wine label that you have found with an easy food selection that is sure to compliment your wine experience, also cooking with wine and how wine makes food better. This experience will guide newcomers to become wine experts and enhance the skills of the experienced wine taster.
