2011 NOWFE Grand Tasting

Posted by perle0 on 2011-10-16 20:59:10 (7015 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

[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

[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.

[New Orleans]
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,
one 5 oz. glass of wine will accompany each course) Antonio Molesini, Italian Wine Specialist from Republic National Beverage, and a native of Cortona, will join us in hosting the event.

He then went on to a very successful 5 years with the Philadelphia Eagles, followed by another 6 years playing with Washington Redskins, Houston Oilers, San Francisco 49ers, and Arizona Cardinals.

NOWFE 2009 Grand Tasting Review Part 2: The Wine

Posted by perle0 on 2009-06-03 00:14:15 (6500 views)

[Editorial]
[New Orleans]
So now, the answer to the question you've all been asking yourselves: forget the details of the how the Grand Tastings went, how was the wine? The short answer is: voluminous! This year, I counted 150 wineries/importers/distributers in the event program, and each one generally had anywhere from 4 to 12 wines available for tasting. Yep, that's over 1000 individual wines, and each tasting lasts a mere three hours. So if you were able to swig one wine every 10 seconds or so, without any need to walk from table to table, point out the wine you want to taste, converse with the winemaker, etc., then you might be able to taste them all. Unfortunately, the laws of physics, not to mention the laws of human endurance, makes this utterly impossible. Even attending both Grand Tastings, thus effectively doubling the tasting time, I could not have tried even half of the wines on offer. With that in mind, let's see what wines stood out in my book....
Freixenet had plenty of options to try.

NOWFE 2009 Grand Tasting Review Part 1: Overview

Posted by perle0 on 2009-05-27 00:35:46 (6395 views)

[Editorial]
[New Orleans]
Once again, the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience was a smashing success. (It doesn't seem too hard to go right with all of that delicious wine and food, but I imagine that it's a lot harder to put together than it looks.) Like last year, the 2009 Grand Tastings were held in the Superdome, and on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon of Memorial Day Weekend. The Superdome makes for a handy venue, since it has parking available for a reasonable fee and plenty of room for the exhibitors. Since the crowds barely fit as it was on Saturday, I think they'll be sticking with the 'Dome for a while, unless somebody has a larger space to offer.

Another year, another awesome Grand Tasting for the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience! This year, the Grand Tasting was held in a huge new venue...the Superdome. The event organizers had tons of extra room to play around with, and it showed in many ways. I can't say if this was the biggest NOWFE Grand Tasting ever, but it sure felt like it!

The Grand Tasting is the culmination of a five-day wine and food blow-out, and this one rose to the very high standards New Orleans has for both wine and food. More than 175 wineries from all over the world were represented, pouring an estimated 1000 wines. 75 of New Orleans' best restaurants provided samples of their finest cuisine, to make sure nobody got too tipsy. (They failed on that account in some cases, but did not fail to provide taste temptations sure to lure attendees to their regular kitchens for more.) In addition, there was constant live music, a Louisiana seafood cook-off of New Orleans' finest chefs, and even Mardi Gras floats and a Second Line parade to close things out.
