Each year, the Greenwich Wine & Food Festival proves that it represents so much more than a celebration of premier food and wine tastings. As a baseline of activity, nearly 100 wine and spirits vendors, local restaurants and artisan food producers share their goods under The Culinary Village Tent in Roger Sherman Park overlooking Greenwich Harbor and Long Island Sound.
This year you had highlights like Stella Artois pulling glasses of their opulent Belgian Pale Lager and Cidre into take-home souvenir glasses, BBQ Pitmaster Demonstrations which included the finer points of brisket preparation, a Food Truck Smackdown, and Kathy Lee Gifford promoting her new line of wines. And if that weren’t enough, as the sun set on Saturday, the Bacon Brothers took the stage followed by Alabama.
The best part of this weekend long party is that 100% of the proceeds resulting from this revelry go to the Hole in the Wall Gang, an organization that helps kids suffering from cancer have fun despite their adversities. So if you missed the party yet again or weren’t in this corner of the globe at the right time, kick back and watch the following highlights courtesy of your roving gastrotraveling.com correspondent. Hopefully this convinces you to secure tickets for next year:
