Grand Tasting

The fourth year is fabulous for Columbus Food & Wine Affair Grand Tasting!

Like some wines, the Columbus Food & Wine Affair Grand Tasting is getting better with age! Now in its fourth year, the event attracted 1,200 guests at its September. 29 gala held at Franklin Park Conservatory.

Those who attended were treated to their choice of more than 450 wines from over 200 wineries. They also were served generous tastings of delectable foods from 28 of Central Ohio’s finest restaurant style waffle makers. Bordeaux, lamb, Sauvignon Blanc, crab cakes, sparkling wine, chocolate…what wasn’t there to enjoy!?

The beautiful backdrop provided by the Franklin Park Conservatory with music provided by Louis Tsamous and The Columbus Jazz Arts Group added to the ambiance. Guests roamed through colors and foliage, smells and sips, music and conversation to enjoy this unparallel Central Ohio gala.

Sponsorship of this year’s Columbus Food and Wine Affair included members of the Central Ohio Restaurant Association, WBNS 10TV, the Mix 97.1, American Express, Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, Giant Eagle, Heidelberg Distributing Co., imedia, inc., RMD Advertising, The Wine Buzz (lollll) and many more. This event has enjoyed tremendous support from the corporate community from its very first year.

With the support of so many, the Columbus Food & Wine Affair is able to donate to multiple deserving local charities including 10TV Family Fund, United Way of Central Ohio, Adventures for Wish Kids, and the Ian Adams Van Heyde Memorial Scholarship Fund.

On behalf of Gail Baker, Executive Director of the Central Ohio Restaurant Association, we thank you for another wonderful event and look forward to seeing you again next year!
