Stop in for the 7th Annual Wine and Food Festival at National Harbor; bringing together world-renowned chefs, artisanal craftsmen, and culinary pioneers with thousands of Metro DC’s foodies.

Join Us for all the exciting features that over 40,000 guests have enjoyed over the years:

Over 150 Different Wines, Beers, and Spirits in an
ALL-YOU-CARE-TO-TASTE affair.  The title says wine but there are all types of adult beverages offered, sampled, and compared.

Best Selection Guarantee. Our range is vast and covers most wine lovers’ palates covering selections from the best in the US to an International array that offers guests a lot of surprises.  We pour bottles that range in retail value of $8.99 - $500.00+.

Lots of covered seating under the big tents.

• A special craft beer tasting BIER GARTEN experience will give guests something they don’t get at other local wine festivals.

The Whiskey & Bourbon Experience Lounge offers a relaxing setting complete with hand rolled cigar demonstrations for guests.

Our VIP pier experience is sure to please. This is a fully catered affair with tastings from Noon - 4pm and then the Sunset Champagne Closing Party each evening from 5pm - 6pm for your last call.

• The Cooking Stage features hands-on cooking demonstrations and wine pairings that offer fun for all guests.

• Local, regional and nationally recognized chefs converge to offer meet and greets, book signings and demonstrations throughout the event.

Wine & Food will offer several wine, beer and food tastings and dinners that are beyond the regular show hours and offerings.  We will post these as they come available. Look to the LEFT for these unique experiences.  Each is limited attendance, must be reserved in advance on a – first come, first serve basis.
