Wine Lovers and Foodies head for Annapolis
It is centered around three of Annapolis' prime attractions: fine dining and gourmet food; premier wine and spirit purveyors; and the natural setting of the Chesapeake Bay. Here you can enjoy food and wine pairings; gourmet chef cooking demos; and wine tasting flights – all add up to a fun-filled weekend for wine lovers and foodies alike.
Special events include a selection of "Vintner Dinner Parties" at award-winning downtown Annapolis restaurants as well as tastings of "Champagne and Oysters on the Half-Shell." For a romantic afternoon, perhaps "Wine, Dine, and Cruise the Chesapeake Bay."
Known as the “sailing capital of the world,” Annapolis and its city dock waterfront provide a natural setting for the two day event. With a great view of Ego Ally and its parade of sailing vessels, this historic seaport is an inviting, romantic, and fun-filled city.
As a premier travel destination on the east coast, Annapolis boasts over seventy-five restaurants in its downtown Main Street-Maryland Avenue-West Street-Dock Street-Eastport area. Many restaurants create menus that highlight local seafood cuisine but one can also dine on authentic Sicilian pasta or simply sip a cocktail on a deck overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.
