Wine All You Want

The wine will flow freely for the MidAtlantic Wine + Food Festival, as winemakers from six continents and 10 countries fly in May 14-18. Four of the 2013 festival favorites—Château Tanunda, Hand of God, Domaine Kikones and Martinelli Winery & Vineyards—have returned for 2014, and the festival will toast the 16 new wineries that have the celebration. All the wine poured at the festival is being donated by the winemakers, who are also contributing their time and talent. Winemakers, cellar masters and owners who will share their wines, their tasting notes and their stories as part of this 50-event festival. “We welcomed seven winemakers from five continents last year, and have more than doubled that number in only our second year,” says festival founder and president Ajit George. “We are thrilled to bring the world of wine to the MidAtlantic, and with the addition of Kerry Damskey, Master Winemaker from Sula Vineyards in India, we have secured participation from a sixth continent: Asia. The only way we can top that is if we can find some friends in Antarctica!” Many of the wines will be available for sale on May 17 at the festival wine shop in the Bazaar at the DoubleTree Downtown in Wilmington and at preferred purveyors and wine suppliers in Delaware.
