IRENE is a storm of the past--the grounds at TANGLEWOOD are greener than ever--waiting for the 8th Annual TANGLEWOOD WINE & FOOD CLASSIC to begin this LABOR DAY HOLIDAY.
I couldn't think of a Better way to spend your Labor Day Holiday in the Berkshire's.
This year's Festival is unlike the past--your Grand Tasting ticket admits you to the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, as well. The GRAND TASTING takes place on Saturday, September 3rd, in the HAWTHORNE TENT and is divided into two sessions: 12-2pm and 4-6pm.
Each session is ticketed separately and comes with a Complimentary Lawn ticket for the Jazzfest held on the Tanglewood grounds. At only $75 a ticket, this a true BARGAIN!
The GRAND TASTING features 75 wineries, Artisan Cheese, a Farmers Market(TAFT Farms) and SPECIALTY Meat Products from HUDSON VALLEY FOIS GRAS.
For the true WINE COLLECTOR, on Thursday night, September 1st, an AUCTION DINNER takes place at BLANTYRE ($225) and features wines auctioned by CHARLES ANTIN, from Christie's Auction House. A fabulous 'Gourmet' Dinner will be provided by Blantyre'S Chef CHRISTOPHER BROOKS and Chef DAMIAN SANSONETTI from New York's famous BAR BOULUD.
