Get Ready for New Orleans Wine & Food Experience

The New Orleans Wine & Food Experience (NOWFE) returns for its 28th annual event taking place March 18-22.

“We are excited to be hosting our annual event in March, a beautiful time of year to experience New Orleans,” said Aimee Brown, NOWFE executive director.

The event is the perfect opportunity for visitors to enjoy the city while enjoying a hands-on culinary experience.

“Our events are right in the heart of the city, giving guests a taste of our food and the great wines of the world, and also our art and architecture, our history and culture, and our people—the real soul of our city,” added Brown.

The five-day event has a busy roster of tastings, labs and parties that include wine dinners, a Tournament of Roses and the Burlesque Brunch as well as the Royal Street Stroll, the Grand Tastings and the After Party.

A highlight for true wine connoisseurs is Vinola, during which guests have the opportunity to sample rare and highly valued wines boasting a retail value of at least $75.

This year’s wine and food labs include a Natural Wines Roundtable; Purely Pinot: An Interactive Tasting Exploration; Brave New World: Fruit Driven Wines Presented by Master Sommelier Evan Goldstein; David & Goliath in the Wine World: Fostering “Small” Wineries in a “Large” Winery Landscape; and more.

In addition to a la carte event tickets, there are several ticket packages from which guests can choose.
