Foodshed Alliance Wine and Food Festival
September 26, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm$25
Sponsored by Alba Vineyard to benefit the Foodshed Alliance, the Garden State’s best wineries will join forces with the state’s premium wine wholesalers to pour their finest estate wines on September 26 and 27 at Alba Vineyard.
The festival is the vineyard’s largest charitable event with 100% of the proceeds going to the Foodshed Alliance, an organization dedicated to integrating local food systems that nourish people, sustain farmers, respect lands, and builds a resilient food economy.
In staying true to the Foodshed Alliance’s mission, the event will feature and unparalleled line up of some of New Jersey’s most reputable chefs who will be presenting cooking demonstrations, lectures and samples. The line up continues with local celebrity cookbook authors as well as farmers who will all be on hand in our demo tent presenting information related to locally produced food and farming in Northern New Jersey. Agriculturally related vendors will be on hand as well. (schedule of events to be posted soon!)
The festival invites only the best commercial wineries in the state who are truly producing wine from the grapes they are growing from within the Garden State as well as some of the most storied wineries in the world today.
Great area bands will provide live music. Come enjoy wine tastings, great food from Country Picnic and wood-fired pizza from Sanducci’s Trattoria, or bring your own picnic lunch. Local agricultural related vendors will be in attendance with food for purchase as well.
