This is year Sixteen (16) for the Saratoga Wine & Food Festival, a tradition whose quality of wines, spirits and food keeps getting better year by year. This years personalities include: Anne Burrell, Marc Murphy, Josh Capon, Jasper Alexander, Chris Morris, Joshua Wesson and The Beekman Boys.

The three-day festival includes a variety of events from a Sunday, late morning ’Jazz Brunch’ hosted by Angelo’s Tavolo, Fish At 30 Lake; Prime at the Saratoga National and 677 Prime to tonights, ‘Fired Up!’ event, where a grill-off competition will take place. Local restaurants competing include: 15 Church; Ama Cocina; Sperry’s; Salt & Char; Fish At 30 Lake; Prime at Saratoga National and Primal: Your Local Butcher.

My favorite event, the ‘Grand Tasting’ takes place on Saturday from 1-4pm (VIP 12-4pm). The Grand Tasting focuses on hundreds of wines, spirits, beer and local and international culinary products including cheese, salami and a vast array of charcuterie.

Add 30 participating restaurants to the mix and you will have the time of your life. On top of all of the food and drinks, culinary demonstrations, a live auction and a show of luxury cars hosted by the Saratoga Automobile Museum will dot the lawn.
