Foster your love for fermented grapes with today’s side deal: $50 gets you admission to the grand tasting at the 11th Annual International Wine & Food Festival on Sunday, February 14, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. (an $85 value). You’ll get unlimited wine tastings and food samples, plus cooking demonstrations from notable chefs throughout the day. Surprise your sweetie with a Valentine’s Day ticket to heady sips and gourmet bites, or go solo and meet the oenophile of your dreams when your foreheads nearly touch as you bend over a bouquet of pinot noir.
During your time at the festival, you’ll get a chance to taste more than 600 wines from 100 of the most respected wineries from Spain, France, Italy, Greece, New Zealand, and the U.S. Non-wine vendors, meanwhile, will offer artisanal foods to sample and purchase so that you don’t get too tipsy from your unlimited sips. You can also break up your tastings with cooking demonstrations by Chef Patrice Olivon from L’Academie de Cuisine at 2 p.m., Nage's Chef Glenn Babcock at 3 p.m., and Chef Todd Gray of Equinox Restaurant at 4 p.m. All three demos will take place at the Washington Post Main Stage.
You must be 21 or older to enter.
