Stop What You’re Doing and Get Your Ticket to the Wine & Food Festival of New Paltz

Going to be in New Paltz this weekend? Looking for an excuse to wear your fancy clothes? Just want to drink wine and eat food? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you should probably swing by the Mohonk Mountain House this weekend for the New Paltz Wine & Food Festival, April 22-24. Various events will take place throughout the weekend including wine and cheese pairings and a grand tasting with dishes made by the top-notch chefs at the Mohonk Mountain House. Sara Moulton, Julia Child’s protégé, is among some of the celebrity chefs who will be presenting at the festival. Last year Martha Stewart made an appearance–maybe she’ll make a re-appearance this year. Here’s hoping.

Pick and choose which events you want to attend or book the whole shebang here for $245. You don’t have to be a sommelier to fit in with the crowd. Various wine seminars will be held throughout the weekend to bring you up to speed. Want to make a weekend out of it? The Mohonk Mountain House has a number of overnight packages. Check them out here.
