Wine and food to make D.C. the place to be

January 30, 2013 by  

The Washington D.C. International Wine and Food Festival is returning for another year. The festival draws approximately 6,000 visitors annually from all Washington and surrounding communities, which no doubt includes visitors from nearby Laurel, Maryland.

Organizers are likely working with local printing companies to create flyers and posters to market the festival throughout the area. They might also be investing in banners to be hung in various areas of the city.

The Wine and Food Festival, which is presented by the Washington Post, will feature wine tastings, food pairing, seminars, a wine bar, an auction, and several showcase dinners. The auction will be online only and will benefit Cohn’s Kitchen – an organization that trains youth from the Washington D.C. area in the culinary trade, so donations from local businesses are welcomed.

Seminars will be presented by winemakers and chefs and topics will include ‘World Renowned Diversity of the Barossa Valley’ and ‘Australia Cabernet vs. the World’ and will be presented by wine experts. It should be a great event for those who love wine but would like to learn more about how to appreciate it and to learn which foods go best with which wines.

The 14th annual Washington D. C. International Wine and Food Festival will take place at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center from February 5 – 9. Tickets vary depending on the event, with seminars priced at $45 each and ticket packages ranging in price from $100 to $270.
