Tour and taste at Newport’s mansions!

The Preservation Society of Newport County holds its fourth annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival September 25-27. The two-and-a-half day affair, presented by Food & Wine Magazine, includes a wine auction on Friday night and gala honoring Jacques Pepin, a wine tasting on both Saturday and Sunday featuring over 150 wines, chef cooking demos and more.

On Sunday, you can experience the olde tyme bling of the mansions, the fall colors and wines with me as I will be the featured wine speaker!

The organizers have are offering $10 off any ticket purchase by entering the code DRVINO, valid through 9/14. That means that a ticket to just the Sunday grand tasting is $65 or 43 cents if you taste each wine–less than the price of a stamp! Other packages are available too for the whole weekend. Be sure to say hi on 9/27 if you are there!

  3. Haha, you’re a true salesman, Tyler. “or 43 cents if you taste each wine–less than the price of a stamp!” That’s definitely a great defense for rationalizing the price.
