The Wine Rendezvous Grand Tasting & Chef Showcase

Date: June 08, 2019
The Wine Rendezvous Grand Tasting & Chef Showcase has been touted as one of the most spectacular wine and culinary events in the country. This years’ 15th Anniversary is a reunion of chefs, wines and sponsors, many who’ve been with Wine & Food Week from the very beginning. To us, they’re family – just as you have become part of our family.

After the toast - doors to the grand ballroom open where the festivities are officially underway. Just inside the entry, you’ll find the “Today We Rose” Bubbles Cove where you’ll start your evening with just the right touch of bubbly.

You’ll enjoy chef demonstrations, culinary offerings from 50+ restaurants, and hundreds of wines. Features include Destination Spotlight on Aruba, with leading chefs from the Island and returning Chef of Chefs award winners competing to defend their title. Meet accomplished Chefs from near and far. Finish a fabulous evening on a sweet note with selections of confectionery perfection and desserts extraordinaire in the Celebrity Cruises Life is Suite Zone.

At the closing ceremony, Goya Foods will present the Waterford Crystal Chef of Chefs trophy and $5,000 cash to the winning chef, as voted by a panel of esteemed judges. For the serious wine enthusiast, you’ll want to upgrade to the Tom Peacock Cadillac VIP Luxury Lounge. Crème de la crème wine selections for discerning palettes are offered in swank surroundings within a private lounging area.
The evening benefits New Danville, a self-sustaining, master-integrated community for adults with intellectual disabilities to Live, Learn, Work and Grow. We’re proud to join ranks with our new benefactor, the Montgomery County Food Bank, which collects and distributes food and resources to those in need in our community.
