So you have 450 people and a thousand bottles of wine and 4 celebrity chefs. Hmmmmm…What to do? Time to eat and drink in a big bad way. We were pleased to be asked for the second year running to assist in the American Fine Wine Competition. In order to give all our competing wines good face time with our sponsors, we created 30 individual wine tasting rooms as a cocktail hour. Guests had the opportunity to bid on some pretty fantastic schwag and they got a first hand experience using the digital bidding system – Bidpal. Gotta love technology. Our dinner consisted for four chefs including Norman Van Aken, Dean Max, Angelo Elia and Christina Machamer displays their culinary skills. Each chef cooked a course served to the tantalized audience.
The Wine Event of the Year – celebrating the finest wines produced in the United States took place at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton, Florida. Great vendors as always helped us make the event truly spectacular. Thanks to Wizard Productions, Uplyte, Dalsimer, Hilary Kole and Michael Sarz amongst others!
