The Worcester Wine Festival Grand Tasting – 2020

September 12 at 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

Stay tuned for tickets and more information as we merge our brands in January!

Worcester Wine Festival’s Grand Tasting at Union Station in Worcester, MA is the main event for Mass Food & Wine. In addition to the near 400 hand-curated wines the Grand Tasting will include tastings from selected restaurants, and a small number of hand-picked vendors, specializing in arts, retail, and more. During the Grand Tasting, both consumers and industry leaders will be introduced 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’s goal is to let guests experience these wines and foods without a chaotic crowd so that you can converse with vintners, wineries, and distributors while learning about the unique processes that go into each vendor’s wine and food. Whether you’re tasting for your restaurant or your own palates, the hand-chosen wines and foods will change any preconceived notion of what a wine festival used to be.
