WHAT: Wine dinners and grand tastings await at the annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival starting Thursday, September 17, 2020. The weekend Grand Tastings will take place on the Marble House lawn on September 19 and 20, 2020.
Guests will have the opportunity to taste and experience wines from every major wine region, enjoy food from artisanal food purveyors and top restaurants and meet famous local, regional and national chefs. VIP tickets give guests early admission to the Grand Tasting at noon and access to a special VIP area throughout the event. This is a 21+ event.
All proceeds from the Newport Mansions Wine and Food Festival benefit the historic preservation efforts of The Preservation Society of Newport County, Rhode Island, a non-profit organization accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and dedicated to preserving and interpreting the area’s historic architecture, landscapes and decorative arts. Its 11 historic properties—seven of them National Historic Landmarks—span more than 250 years of American architectural and social development.
