By October 27, 2018Rhode Island, Top News

Suppliers and wholesalers showcased regional, national and international wine brands during the annual Newport Mansions Food & Wine Festival on September 20 through 23. In its thirteenth year, the elegant event was hosted by the Preservation Society of Newport County, with all proceeds benefiting the nonprofit group dedicated to preserving the area’s history and architecture. Opening with a Bordeaux Dinner the evening of September 20, the four-day series of events took place at The Elms, Rosecliff and Marble House mansions. Themed wine dinners and special events were among the many highlights provided by guest celebrity chefs, along with demonstrations and seminars by leading food and wine experts. The weekend’s Grand Tastings, held on the lawn of the Marble House, set the stage for sampling hundreds of wines set against scenic views.
