Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival Event Re-Cap

Posted by: on September 28, 2012

We had a ball at the festival this past weekend.  It’s always a pleasure working with the Preservation Society of Newport County, the entire staff at the Newport Mansions, Russel Morin catering, and, of course, our generous beverage sponsors without whom none of this would be possible.

The weather could not have been better.  Cool, crisp, sunny, and breezy!

The Wine & Rosecliff gala event on 9/21 at Rosecliff Mansion was splendid.  Guests enjoyed wine tastings, Newport-themed cocktails (by yours truly), and a wide variety of gourmet food by local chefs.  By evening’s end the music was pumping and guests were dancing up a storm.

Marble House Mansion was the scene for the two-day Grand Tasting Tent.  Our tables were frequented by nearly 3000 guests!  We served cocktails to Newport natives, chefs, socialites, and more.

Jonathan and Jeffrey signed their books, and the Cocktail Guru team fascinated guests with unique and creative liquid concoctions.

Want to see some photos, you say?  We’ve created a special link just for this.  So you can click below and see how the weekend progressed (with more photos to follow in the coming days):
