- $42 for admission for one to the Vineyard Party, a Vine to Glass Affair!, at the Boca Raton Wine & Food Festival on Friday, November 8 from 7:30–10 p.m. (an $85 value)
Oenophiles gather among the grapes for an exclusive Vineyard Party with wines from around the world. The event's IKEA Kitchen Alley features cooking demonstrations by chefs specializing in a wide range of cuisines, and sommeliers lead wine education classes in the Wine Sensory Garden. Craft beers and spirits will be available at the Spirits Region, and customers can purchase their favorite wines from the new retail wine store.
Boca Raton Wine & Food Festival
Now in its fourth year, the Boca Raton Wine & Food Festival unites winemakers and culinary experts for three days of sipping and celebrating, with events such as VIP Dinner Under The Stars, Vineyard Party, BRAMAN Motorcars Palm Beach Grand Tasting, as well as the Jazz Bubbles & Brunch. Guests take in the outdoor setting while sampling reds and whites from wineries located in California, Florida, Italy, and everywhere in between. To accompany glassfuls, chefs dish up freshly roasted meats from Ethos Greek bistro and freshly snared truffles from Godiva chocolates. Over in the bazaar, visitors can take a quick international journey while perusing globally sourced olive oil and fragrant spice and tea blends. Beginning this year, a wine store is available for guests to purchase their favorite wines from the events. While unique gifts are found and goblets clinked, musical acts provide an upbeat soundtrack.
Boca Burger Battle
Some like theirs rare and some like theirs well-done. Some like theirs bare and others like them chock full of toppings from eggs to shredded pork. No matter your burger preference, the competitors at the third-annual Boca Burger Battle will surely suit your fancy as they vie for the Golden Burger trophy and the titles of Best Boca Burger and Best Alternative Burger. Nineteen burger makers from throughout southern Florida converge, grilling inventive and alternative burgers, all of which guests get to sample. Contenders include grill masters from Bite Gastrotruck, Morton's Steak House, and 4th Generation Organic Market, who will be judged by seasoned chefs, festival-goers, and their mothers. To wash down juicy bites, the folks from Cockspur Rum and Iceberg Vodka will mix rum punch and Electric lemonade, alongside a slew of craft beer and wine vendors serving their own boozy creations. And the tastings aren't just limited to burgers and drinks; vendors will also dish out fries, onion rings, salads, wings, and desserts.
After the judges have declared the winners, the festival kicks into after-party mode with live music from rock fiends Classic Rock Therapy, previews of Star Motorcycle's sweet new bikes, and, of course, more drinks and eats. A portion of the day's proceeds will benefit the nonprofit organization People Reaching Out to Provide Education and Leadership, so you can leave feeling good about more than just your expanded palate.
