Here is a sampling of some of the events that will occur during the New Orleans Wine & Food Experience. You must be at least 21 to attend these events.

Wine dinners - A variety of events will be offered during the New Orleans Wine & Food Experience, including special events at different restaurants. A list of restaurants will be available closer to the beginning of the festival. The wine dinners will give you the opportunity to learn about wine and food pairings and about different wineries.

Vinola is a fine-wine tasting event featuring wines from around the world presented by the winemakers. Food samples from a variety of restaurants will also be available.

Experiences and labs are one-of-a-kind events that feature New Orleans culture in an interactive wine and food opportunity. Choose one or more for a highlight to your visit.

A large selection of labs conducted by wine professionals and chefs will also be held. Topics will include trends in the wine industry and the culinary world.

Natural Wines Round Table - This lab starts with a discussion of how natural wine is defined, what is needed to produce natural wines and the characteristics of a natural producer. Various natural wine issues such as sustainability, organic methods, biodynamics, minimal intervention, orange, and sulfur will be discussed. Additional sources of information will be provided. At the same time, you can sample natural wines.

Purely Pinot: An Interactive Tasting Exploration

Jackson Family Wines is sponsoring this lab teaching participants how to taste wines. You will use an app to analyze the aroma, flavor, body, and other characteristics of several pinot noir wines. The audience responses will be charted, and you can compare your responses with the group assessment.
