The Hermann-Grimma and Gallier Historic Houses offer glimpses into what life was like in New Orleans hundreds of years ago through historical recreations of various rooms in the households. The homes are open for tours and school groups in order to educate visitors about the history of the city.
Wine Fete took place in the stunning courtyard of the Hermann-Grimma House with the purpose of raising funds for the historic homes. Under twinkling lights and with champagne in hand, the revelers danced, dined, and socialized for the cause. The delectable food including Tabasco-rubbed Pork Tenderloin, Chicken Satay Skewers, Crawfish Bread, and freshly-fried Catfish was placed near the former kitchen rooms of the home; the juxtaposition of the old with the new was a wonderful reminder about how far the city has come along and how important it is to preserve this bit of history for future generations.
