Annapolis is renowned for its waterfront beauty, brick-lined historic streets filled with unique shops and restaurants, and sailing. On Saturday, May 11, 2013, the “sailing capital of the nation” becomes a wine connoisseur’s paradise during The Annapolis Wine Expo. In cooperation with Southern Wine and Spirits, over 100 national and international wines to suit every palate will be served at this “indoor wine festival” where guests move between wine stations while tasting light hors d’oeuvres. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase their favorite wines by the bottle and case.
The Lawrence “N” Room of The Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium is where the exciting event takes place: Session I is from 12:00 noon-2:30 pm and Session II from 3:30 pm – 6:00 pm. Session I tickets are $50.00 and Session II tickets are $60.00 and are available online with only 400 tickets being sold per session.
Guests can also select to attend one of the tasting seminars presented by Southern Wine and Spirits sommeliers: Learning to Taste Like a Pro; The Big Six Tasting; and Cork and Fork. Advance registration with a ticket purchase is required.
