The 25th Anniversary of the New Orleans Food & Wine Experience will take place May 25-28, 2017, and tickets are on sale now for this highly anticipated, annual four-day event.
For more than two decades NOWFE has showcased the culinary excellence in the New Orleans, Louisiana, community alongside national and international wines at wine dinners, seminars, special events and the Grand Tasting. This year, the Grand Tasting will move to a new location on Saturday, May 28th: Mardi Gras World on Convention Center Blvd. “The environment of Mardi Gras World lends itself to the festive and fun atmosphere that the Grand Tasting conjures,” states Traci Beninate, 2017 NOWFE President. “Tickets to all of this year’s events are on sale now on our website. We hope everyone who has enjoyed NOWFE over the past 25 years will join us for this special silver anniversary celebration.
NOWFE 2017 includes Wine Dinners hosted by more than 30 New Orleans area restaurants; Vinola, NOWFE’s premium tasting event; the Royal Street Stroll presented by Rouses, NOWFE’s signature event, a definitive evening event set in the heart of the French Quarter; exciting Culinary Seminars and Experiences, the Grand Tasting on Saturday in true grand fashion with more than 175 wineries showcasing over 1000 wines and 75 chefs serving culinary delights from our region, and the Big Gateaux Show, a scintillating pastry competition, all of which will fill the days and nights with all things wine and food.
For 25 years the New Orleans Wine & Food Experience has showcased the culinary excellence in our community alongside national and international wines at wine dinners in many of the city’s finest restaurants; at VINOLA, a premium tasting event; at the iconic Royal Street Stroll Presented by Rouses; at dozens of culinary seminars and demonstrations; at the Big Gateaux Show; and ultimately at the Grand Tasting.
