Friday Night Extravagance
Start the three-day weekend with flavorful hors d’oeuvres and award-winning champagne inside the elegant Chestnut Room. The 45-minute Champagne Reception kicks off the weekend before the lavish Wine Cellar Dinner, which will feature award-winning wine and gourmet French cuisine from Chef Gabriel Kreuther and Pastry Chef Marc Aumont from Manhattan’s Gabriel Kreuther Restaurant, a AAA 5 Diamond Restaurant. The three-hour Top Chefs & Top Wines Dinner, meanwhile, will take place inside four-star Restaurant Latour and feature creations from four of the best chefs on the East Coast. This seven-course dinner will be paired with some of the rarest bottles of wine from The Wine Cellar.
Begin the day with Wine Yoga before participating in several on-site seminars and cooking demonstrations. This is one of the only wine and food festivals in NJ to feature at least ten seminars over the span of eight hours. Most seminars and demonstrations don’t overlap, so you’ll be able to enjoy nearly everything that we have to offer! Indulge in award-winning, California-based Paso Robles wine while painting a colorful portrait during Paso Paint & Sip. Join Jack Shute from Sagamore Spirit, for an in depth tasting of the ebrand's award-winning rye whiskeys in our Bourbon's Older Brother seminar. And learn the “Secrets of the Cellar” with C.O.O. Robby Younes. During this 90-minute seminar, Younes will tell engrossing tales of The Wine Cellar’s history while participants sip on some of our most expensive bottles of rare vino.
The Grand Tasting
The Grand Tasting is perhaps everyone’s favorite part of the weekend, mainly because participants have the opportunity to taste their way through culinary delights from more than 40 top chefs. Each dish is paired perfectly with a hand-selected wine or spirit. The 32-piece David Aaron Orchestra will provide live entertainment. Purchase a VIP pass to receive early access to The Grand Tasting, champagne, and exclusive access to the Grand Rotunda and third-floor VIP Lounge throughout the night.
Biosphere After Party
The annual New Jersey Wine and Food Festival has an event that all other festivals in NJ yearn for: a lively, extravagant poolside After Party! Immediately following The Grand Tasting, participants can stroll down to our tropical Biosphere Pool Complex for a genuinely unforgettable evening of live entertainment, dancing, and free drinks. Live DJs will provide groovy dance floor tunes while a talented troupe will entertain guests until 1 a.m. Don’t miss the late-night buffet before heading off to your luxurious overnight accommodations.
