The Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival will look a little different this year, with a focus on more intimate, educational tasting experiences. The schedule of events includes a Seminar Series offering a variety of 50-person learning and tasting experiences with wine and spirits. Attendees to all festival events will be seated with their guests at private tables that will be socially distanced to ensure a safe and comfortable experience.
The festival, hosted by the Preservation Society of Newport County, once again is presented by Food and Wine magazine. In addition, the Preservation Society is collaborating with Newport’s many world-class restaurants to create an educational and inspirational weekend for food and wine lovers looking to taste, learn and have fun. This program is presented by BankNewport.
