Luna Vineyards partied like Gatsby last weekend, pouring our wine in a Gilded Age oceanside mansion in Newport, Rhode Island. The Newport Mansions Wine and Food Festival has become an iconic event in the Ocean State. Now, in it’s 12th year, many argue it is the most sophisticated and anticipated event on the East Coast. The weekend-long program featured two grand tastings, educational seminars, a kickoff gala, wine dinners, and a Sunday brunch.
Luna poured five of our Napa Valley wines at the Saturday and Sunday Grand Tastings, located on the lawn at Marble House. The two days were full of wine tastings, culinary demonstrations, shopping, and eating, drawing a crowd of nearly 5,000 people.
All proceeds from the 12th Annual Newport Mansions Wine and Food Festival went to historical preservation in Newport, Rhode Island – a great cause for such an historical and special town.
This was the perfect start to the Fall season! See you next year, Newport.
