New Orleans plays host to one of the premiere wine events in the country this weekend. The New Orleans Wine and Food Experience, or NOWFE, brings winemakers and enthusiasts from around the world for a wide array of events over 4 days. This afternoon, the folks from Barefoot Wine invited me to a fabulous luncheon at one of New Orleans' historic restaurants, Galatoire's!
Between the Chardonnay and Merlot, we also tried some of the company's new offerings, like their "Barefoot Refresh Crisp Red." It's slightly effervescent, not too sweet and served over ice. I can imagine myself sipping a glass on the beach or front porch as the warmer weather sets in!
So without further ado, here's to the weekend. Bottoms up!
