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, with the re-opening of the commonwealth, we’re thrilled to be able to celebrate wine at Polar Park in Worcester on Saturday, August 28th..
A limited number of tickets will be available for the VIP session which grants an hour of exclusive access to preview the Grand Tasting before being ushered to the private DCU Club for a sit-down multi-course pairing with highly sought after wines. At the conclusion, VIPs will be able to enjoy a tasting of these rare wines and may resume access to the Grand Tasting. General Admission will allow guests to enjoy wine “on the field” at Polar Park for a new and exciting perspective. Excitement has already begun to build for an event that certainly be the talk of the region. This event will happen rain or shine and all wines tasted at the event will be available for purchase through Julio’s Liquors—either on-site through their app or within their retail store.
Tickets will be on sale here soon!
