The goal of the Worcester Wine Festival is to introduce consumers and industry leaders throughout the region to some beautiful wines in a comfortable, elegant environment. In addition to wine vendors, a handful of personally invited food and non-alcoholic drink vendors will be sharing their fare with ticket holders. Unlike other wine festivals, the Worcester Wine Festival prides itself on letting guests experience these wines and foods without cattle-call-like lines. The festival’s atmosphere allows for consumers and industry leaders to mingle and talk to vintners, wineries, and distributors to learn more about the unique processes that go into each vendor’s wine and food. Whether guests are tasting for their restaurants or their own palates, the hand approved wines and food options will change anyone’s preconceived notion of what a wine festival used to be.
