I was thrilled to be back at my favorite city by the sea, most notably known as the playground for the elite of the gilded age. I made my way through the bustling crowd at the magnificent Marble House for the 11th Annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival with camera on one hand and a glass of wine in the other. Tasting fabulous wines from around the world and sampling delicious foods from local and national chefs all on a beautiful waterfront setting, how bad can that be! Needless to say I had a very fun and busy day during my grand tasting visit.#nmwffChampagnes at the #nmwff 2016.More than just wine at the 11th Annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival! #nmwffFantastic food samplings at the 11th Annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival! #nmwffPairing the perfect cheese to the perfect wine! #nmwffMy favorite French rosĂ©s looking fine at the festival, ‘Whispering Angel’ and ‘Rock Angel.’French rosĂ©s at the 11th Annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival. #nmwff@strongbow Hard Apple Cider at the 11th Annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival. #nmwffEach year vintners, chefs and honored guests make the VIP list for this crème de la crème event of the season! More than just fabulous french rosĂ©s and wines, the event was fully stocked with all sorts of spirits and elixirs, numerous celebrity chefs cooking demonstrations and other culinary activities. They even had a fabulous display of several vintage vehicles courtesy of Newport’s own Audrain Auto Museum.
