Set aside April 27 to enjoy the annual Slow Food Vast Wine event at Rappahannock Cellars in Huntly, Virginia. Tickets can be purchased online. A description of a Rappahannock Cellars experience is also available online.
Food and Wine
The evening begins with a glass of wine and a passport to food and wine regions. Local food and wine pairings are emphasized. According to the Slow Food Vast Wine website, “Stamp your ‘passport’ in travel-themed areas showcasing award-winning regional wines tastefully paired with gourmet tapas-style offerings with fresh, “beyond organic” locally-sourced ingredients.”
As guests enjoy the inspiring pairings, they can bid on silent auctions including locavore, wine and travel. After the Silent Auctions close, a Live Auction begins. Auction items include a variety of items. Last year the auctions included a staycation, olive oil, an escape to Malta, and much more. The live Auction is followed by dessert and Port. Towards the end of the evening a drawing for raffle items take place. Door prizes are also part of the fun.
The Slow Food Vast Wine event is an annual local food and local wine event that benefits the John XXIII Montessori Children’s Center.
