New Orleans Celebrates 21 Years of Wine and Food

Twenty-one years ago a small group of forward-thinking wine lovers sat around a table concocting an event that today is considered one of the top wine events in the country. The 21st anniversary of the New Orleans Wine & Food Experience will be held May 22 – 25, 2013.
It will include wine dinners hosted by more than 30 local restaurants; Vinola, NOWFE’s premium tasting event; the Royal Street Stroll sponsored by Rouse’s, NOWFE’s signature event set in the heart of the French Quarter; and The Big Gateaux Show, its newest culinary confection.
There’s also a seminar series based on the current trends in wine and food; two days of Grand Tastings with over 75 restaurants and more than 1,000 wines; and culminating with the Ella Brennan Lifetime Achievement in Hospitality Award Gala.
Taking place in “America’s Favourite City” as awarded by Travel + Leisure Magazine, NOWFE annually attracts over 10,000 foodies, wine connoisseurs, art aficionados and music lovers to New Orleans’ restaurants, shops and art galleries.
“NOWFE has come a long way over the last 21 years, but one thing never changes—our commitment to providing a one-of-a-kind experience for wine and food lovers,” states Jamie Peckenpaugh, NOWFE Executive Director. 
Inspired by world-class, local ingredients and culinary talent NOWFE showcases New Orleans’ restaurants, arts and music scene, as well as its architecture and cultural diversity.
Over its 20-year history NOWFE has contributed more than $1 million to local non-profit organizations. This year 100% of the proceeds will go towards two causes: fighting hunger in the community and supporting culinary education.
