The Grand Tasting events will take place on Friday, June 10 and Saturday, June 11 at the Sugar Mill. There, guests will try wines from around the world and chat with winemakers.

NOWFE will also host its wine dinners, Vinola, Labs and Experiences, Tournament of Rosés, Burlesque Bubbly & Brunch, and Ella Brennan Gala throughout the week. Tickets for each will be on sale after Mardi Gras.

NOWFE is one of the world's most celebrated culinary festivals in the country. Each year, hundreds of restaurants and wineries partake in this fête where chefs create menus revolving innovative, mouthwatering local flavors. They are listed as USA Today's 10Best for "Best General Food Festival" and "Best Wine Festival."

This year's festival is made possible by the New Orleans Culinary & Hospitality Institute (NOCHI) and Café Reconcile.

"Honoring and celebrating wines from around the world and the food of this great city is what we live for and overcoming challenges of the last year has made us stronger as a community," NOWFE Executive Director Aimee Brown said. "We look forward to hosting another great event and supporting our hospitality industry for another 30 years."
