2011 NOWFE Grand Tasting

Posted by perle0 on 2011-10-16 20:59:10 (6930 views)

[Editorial]
[New Orleans]
Held each Memorial Day weekend, the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience culminates in the two Grand Tasting sessions on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. This year's event was spectacular, as always.

Though these events have been held in the Superdome during the past few years, it was under renovation this year. So the Grand Tastings took place in the Hilton, a very appealing space but perhaps a little small for the crowds who flock to this event. The decor, however, was probably the most successful I've seen yet. Ghostly fabric trees lit from inside with strings of lights formed the centerpieces, and on the periphery, tables with luminescent plastic footing in brilliant colors gave these edges of the scene a lovely glow.

Rosenblum Wines & LASPCA Benefit at Swirl

Posted by bevo vino on 2010-11-03 10:19:03 (3301 views)

[Events]
[New Orleans]
A Benefit for the LASPCA with Rosenblum Wines, Tuesday November 9, 6-8pm
In 1978, veterinarian Dr. Kent Rosenblum and his wife Kathy founded Rosenblum Cellars. Over the years Rosenblum has been hailed as one of the top American wineries and called a ?mecca for zin-fanatics.? Embodying nearly three decades of winemaking tradition, Rosenblum has evolved from a passionate home-winemaking operation into a world-class winery. Today, Rosenblum Cellars is recognized as one of North America?s most acclaimed producers of zinfandel and Rh?ne varietal wines. As a veternarian, Dr. Rosenblum wanted to honor the animals that give us so much joy so he created "Ch?teau La Paws", Rh?ne-inspired blends with a California twist. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this vibrant and deliciously playful wine benefits Paws With A Cause, a charitable leader in training assistance dogs for people with disabilities. And tonight we'll also donate the proceeds from the cost of the tasting to the LASPCA. The Chateau La Paws wines will be in the lineup as well as the Rosenblum Viognier, Petite Sirah, and their award winning, highly rated "Rockpile Zinfandel". Taste five great wines, help out the SPCA, and feel free to bring your well behaved, leashed, four legged friends if you want too! This event is limited to 40 - two legged participants. Reservation and prepayment are required, call 504.304.0635 $15.

The 2010 NOWFE Grand Tastings--A Seafood Delight

Posted by perle0 on 2010-05-30 22:48:47 (8348 views)

[Editorial]
[New Orleans]
Once again, the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience (NOWFE) ended with its big event, the Grand Tastings. With one held Friday night and one Saturday afternoon, they have for the last few years taken place in the Superdome, where there's plenty of room for the massive amounts of wine and food. It's definitely the event of the year for wine-lovers and foodies alike (so often, the two are combined in the same person anyway), and this year was no exception. With hundreds of wines to sample and dishes for tasting from most of New Orleans's finest restaurants, what's not to love?

The cocktail garden area provided some of the much-coveted seating.

Each year, Swirl Wine Bar & Market celebrates the best of Italy with an Italian wine dinner featuring the highest award-winning wines of the Gambero Rosso Vini d'Italia, those given the "Tre Bicchieri" or 3 Glass designation. Given to less than 300 wines yearly, the Tre Bicchieri award is the highest and most prestigious honor that can be bestowed upon an Italian wine and is highly coveted by producers.

To best present the wines, we choose an Italian restaurant each year that demonstrates the same commitment to superior quality and match these amazing wines with their cuisine. We are excited to hold this year's dinner at Chef Adolfo Garcia and Chef Joshua Smith's southern Italian restaurant, a Mano. Chef Joshua Smith's menu will feature 6 tasting courses paired with 6 wines representing their respective regions. (As these wine are produced in limited quantity,
