The festival, now in its 22nd year, is a highlight of any Orlando event calendar, attracting food and wine lovers from all over North America. They come for the international marketplace that features food, wine, and beer from around the world. Appetizer-sized portions usually range from $4.00 – $8.00. The Wine and Dine Studio offers regional dinner entrees with imaginative wine pairings.
Cooking seminars led by industry experts demonstrate how to recreate delicious dishes in your kitchen. Mixology tutorials will teach you how to concoct classic cocktails and the latest custom drinks. All this and vintage bottle signing, book signings by celebrity food authors, events geared to children, and shops bursting with food and wine merchandise to purchase are available at the festival.
