Give yourself (or a wine lover you know and love) something to look forward to in the new year and grab some tickets to the 2023 Boston Wine and Food Festival at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The three-month event kicks off on Thursday, January 12th and features an all-star lineup of happenings headed by the hotel’s team of executive chef David Daniels, sommelier Nick Daddona, and industry expert Nancy Bean, the executive director of WISE UP Events.
The first weekend will kick off with a Staglin Family Vineyard wine dinner on Thursday, January 12th, followed by a tasting tour of the famed Côte d’Or on Friday, January 13th and then the official opening-night tasting reception on Saturday, January 14th. Other highlights include an evening exploring Aligoté with The New York Times’ Wine Critic, Eric Asimov, a dinner with Sonoma’s Aperture Cellars, which was named the “Cult Winery of the Year,” and a seminar and dinner of “Impossible Pairings” with Opus One Winemaker, Michael Silacci.
Take a look at the whole lineup and schedule at the event website, where you can also scoop up some tickets. A portion of proceeds from this year’s fest will also benefit The Greater Boston Food Bank and James Beard Foundation. Tickets for events tend to sell out quickly, so don’t wait too long into the New Year to make your plans. Follow the fest on social media (IG and FB) for updates, and give the hotel a call for Qs and reservations at 617.439.7000.
