Winemakers dinners are my favourite part of the festival. Other than the Bearfoot Bistro — which hosts a dinner paying homage to Jacques Perrin at $400 a head — restaurants haven’t yet officially logged on their dinners to the festival web site. And for the wallet challenged, don’t worry; there are winemaker dinners in the $100 range as well. While the Masquerave and Bubbles events are no longer on the same night, the winemaker’s dinners and Masquerave are. So much to do, only three nights to do it. Good news, the Masquerave runs until 4 a.m. if you’ve got the stamina to do both.
Locally produced events to look out for at the festival include Women, Wine and Books, Slow Food Artisans’ Market and ARTdrenaline. Also new this year, DiVine Soul After Party. The evening dips into chocolate, R & B musicians and circus performers.
