The New Orleans Wine & Food Experience is celebrating it's 24th year (May 26-28, 2016) and each year, hundreds of wineries and restaurants participate. NOWFE is one of the best New Orleans festivals especially if you're a wine lover and a foodie. From intimate wine dinners to cooking demonstrations and seminars, to French Quarter Strolls complete with food, wine and music, there's something for everyone.
For the last 2 years, we have thoroughly enjoyed two of the main (and most popular!) events at the New Orleans Wine & Food Experience, The Royal Street Stroll and The Grand Tasting. If you love wine, delicious food and the city of New Orleans, then these two events will leave you more than satisfied.

The Royal Street Stroll
I mean, come on... whoever created this event is the real MVP. Strolling down Royal Street in the springtime with a glass of wine (with lots more to taste), sampling gourmet dishes, all while live jazz tunes play along this French Quarter route is culinary occasion perfection. It's no wonder this event is one of the favorites every year.
The Grand Tasting
Who is that sampling small plates and great wine at the 2015 NOWFE Grand Tasting? Why that's us! This event showcases over 1,000 domestic and international wines alongside delicious foods, cooking demonstrations and much more.
In addition to The Royal Street Stroll and The Grand Tasting, NOWFE has many other culinary events, the wine dinners, seminars, VINOLA and so many other foodie experiences. Click HERE to learn more.
And to top it all off, NOWFE is a non-profit organization with 100% of proceeds going to causes that support culinary education. Learn more about NOWFE's Beneficiaries HERE.
See you there! #cheers
