Featuring a VIP Experience, a champagne 5K run, and an opportunity to meet the chefs, the Galveston Island Food and Wine Festival makes wine tasting so much more than fun! A blind tasting event takes place in two rounds in which guests swirl, sniff, and sip over 100 red and white wines while each bottle wears a disguise. They must rely only on their palates to determine the attributes and wine making story for each vintage, voting as they taste. The three top-scoring from each of the reds and whites in rounds one and two advance to the Chaine des Rôtisseurs Dinner where one of these six will be named the festival’s Grand Champion.
