2021 Worcester Wine Festival Grand Tasting
August 28 at 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
We are pleased to announce that we’ve secured a date and location for the return of the Worcester Wine Festival’s Grand Tasting! This year, the event will take place Saturday, August 28th at the home of the Worcester Red Sox – Polar Park!
Since its inception in 2017, the Worcester Wine Festival has brought together thousands of food and wine enthusiasts to New England’s second largest city to celebrate wine. Consumers, both casual and professionals, have been able to enjoy over 600 quality wines during the tasting and because of the incredible representation of vineyards, wineries, distributors, and more, the demand has been steady even though we had to take a break in 2020 because of COVID.
This year, after meeting with several venues, we’ve decided to bring the Worcester Wine Festival’s Grand Tasting to Polar Park as the first public event hosted at the Worcester Red Sox’s new home in downtown Worcester. The event will look very similar past festivals – we’ll have a VIP hour for VIP ticket holders to enjoy the tasting tables, and a General Admission ticket open once the VIP hour ends. The Grand Tasting will take place “on the field” at Polar Park, giving it a new and exciting feel. Excitement has already begun to build for an event that certainly be the talk of the region.
There will be a limited VIP session that allows ticket holders preview access to all of the Grand Tasting Wines starting at 12-noon. At 1pm, VIP ticket holders will enjoy a curated multi-course wine pairing and access to a private tasting of highly coveted wines. General Admission ticket holders may enjoy the Grand Tasting Wines from 1:00pm until 3pm.
Tickets will be on sale here soon!
Additionally, we’re pleased to announce that our retail partner, Julio’s Liquors, will be providing the ability to purchase each wine that is tried—directly from their Julio’s Liquors App (from the App Store and Google Play)! Be certain to create your account ahead of time to browse the curated list of wines ahead of time and during the Grand Tasting purchase the wines that you love right from the table for pick-up or MA delivery!
