AW&FA 2011: Everything You Were Afraid to Ask….
Much like Christmas, so anticipated, so far off- and then, all of a sudden, right upon us, imminent, our 13th Annual A Wine & Food Affair, Tasting Along the Wine Road, is here NOW! Arriving in the midst of an especially glorious autumn, #wfa11 (for tweeting- follow me!) promises to be another boffo, SRO production, with over 100 wineries participating, preparing a special dish and pairing it with just the perfect wine, all immortalized in our fantastic TASTING ALONG THE WINE ROAD Cookbook, Volume 13.
This Event promises to sell out- ticket sales end on Halloween night- so do not delay!
Please click HERE to purchase tickets.
You will be asked to choose a starting winery location when you purchase your tickets…you might want to choose one as far from your lodging as possible and then work your way back “home”. The wineries that are marked as “sold out for check in” are only sold out for check in- you can visit them all during the Event after you have checked in- just sayin’.
And do note, you may only check in at the winery at which you have chosen to start…please print your ticket and have your ID to show proof of age…you may be asked to show that ID during the event, even after you are banded…it is the law, after all- and nice to know how young you must look!
And hey, have you secured your awesome Wine Road Lodging?
Now you are set, so off to AW&FA! When you check in do get a program with Event map…out along the Wine Road look for the official Wine Road Event Signs to pinpoint official member participants:
I peruse the program and take a gander at the map and decide on an area that I want to concentrate on and off I go; I do bring along water and some high-fiber snacks to graze on in the car…the recipes are so delicious that I am often sated- however, last year I did take my group out for great dinners on both Friday and Saturday nights…remember reservations at some awesome Wine Road location restaurants!
I love to purchase wines at this Event- souvenirs of my days…to take home and also to bring to restaurants to continue my local adventure. I also purchase great wines for Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas…and there I am again along the Wine Road with my memories to share with my family and friends with each bottle I open.

I’ll see you along Wine Road. I am here to help; post a comment if you would like assistance planning your Wine Road adventure and I will contact you.
Here’s looking at you, kids.
