January is upon us and once again it is time for us local wine enthusiasts to make our annual pilgrimage to Mohegan Sun for the 2013 Sun WineFest.  This year the Grand Tasting is truly grand! Featuring beer, wine, specialty spirits and delectable dishes, this coming weekend’s extravaganza has something for everyone. Wine and beer enthusiasts can select from over 1,000 brands or enjoy tastings of specialty spirits. Foodies can sample signature dishes from the region's most highly rated restaurants. The Main Culinary Stage is the backdrop for two days of celebrity chef demonstrations, including Food Network stars Robert Irvine, Donatella Arpaia and Todd English.

Events still open

Tickets for Sunday’s Grand Tasting remain on sale but act fast as they are sure to sell out. Tickets for Saturday’s Grand Tasting are already sold out, but don’t be deterred as there are many ways to ‘sneak’ your way in. The most extravagant way is to purchase a ticket for the ‘Elite Cru Tasting’. The Elite Cru Tasting, which includes a Saturday Grand Tasting ticket, is an extraordinary opportunity to discover the "best-of-the-best" vintages from around the world and to meet the winemakers and principals behind them. This truly unique event also features a raw bar hosted by Georges Bank presenting their South Bay Blonde Oysters, shrimp from Mazzetta Company and specialty cheeses from igourmet.com. Guests also receive a $50 gift certificate from igourmet.com as a part of this one-of-a-kind experience.

At the 2013 Mohegan Sun WineFest there is truly something for everyone! For the Bourbon Enthusiasts there are still tickets available for Friday’s Bourbon Tasting. Tickets also remain for the Mohegan Sun WineFest’s Grape Stomp, which takes place Saturday at 4pm and to the wine seminars: ‘How to Craft the Famous Bellini’ presented by Canella Winery, ‘Argentina & Malbec’ presented by Alamos Winer and ‘Beer & Cheese’ presented by Smuttynose Beer Company.
