I was thrilled to be back at my favorite city by the sea, most notably known as the playground for the elite of the gilded age. I made my way through the bustling crowd at the magnificent Marble House for the 11th Annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival with camera on one hand and a glass of wine in the other. Tasting fabulous wines from around the world and sampling delicious foods from local and national chefs all on a beautiful waterfront setting, how bad can that be! Needless to say I had a very fun and busy day during my grand tasting visit.#nmwffChampagnes at the #nmwff 2016.More than just wine at the 11th Annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival! #nmwffFantastic food samplings at the 11th Annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival! #nmwffPairing the perfect cheese to the perfect wine! #nmwffMy favorite French rosés looking fine at the festival, ‘Whispering Angel’ and ‘Rock Angel.’French rosés at the 11th Annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival. #nmwff@strongbow Hard Apple Cider at the 11th Annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival. #nmwffEach year vintners, chefs and honored guests make the VIP list for this crème de la crème event of the season! More than just fabulous french rosés and wines, the event was fully stocked with all sorts of spirits and elixirs, numerous celebrity chefs cooking demonstrations and other culinary activities. They even had a fabulous display of several vintage vehicles courtesy of Newport’s own Audrain Auto Museum.
