This will be the first year we are attending the full weekend, which starts tomorrow morning and goes through mid-day on Sunday. Last year we just attended the main Saturday night dinner, the Salmon Bake and the Sunday afternoon tasting. We had a really great time even with this limited program. This year we are doing the full weekend which includes seminars, winery tours and multi-course meals by world renowned chefs. You can see the full itinerary here.
We’ll be staying on campus, which is a bit of a blast from the past. This of course will not require us to drive at all during the wine festival, which is a high priority for me.
Since this is my very first full-weekend IPNC, I am a bit concerned that two full days of celebrating my favorite wine might be a bit much — by the end of the weekend, will I be tired of Pinot Noir? Perish the thought!
What are you doing this weekend? Attending a great food and wine festival or are you staying at home and making your own personal food and wine festival?
