“This year, we have enhanced our three big events—

making them bigger and better than ever before and moving them to new venues,” said Aimee Brown, NOWFE Executive Director.

“In response to high demand, we have added special ticket packages for those attendees looking to spend a few days with us.

And, for the many locals that love to attend our events, we offer the individual ticket option to fit personal schedules and lifestyles.”

Foodies and oenophiles of all experience levels will sample rare and highly valued wines expertly paired with delectable foods crafted by local chefs.

Guests will have the chance to have one-on-one conversations with winemakers and chefs. Tickets are $215 each. VIP tickets are $280 and include 30-minute early entry and VIP lounge access.
