"I would like to know how your service works."
That quote is from an e-mail we received this week. We get questions like that from time to time… and if you've been wondering the same thing, here's the answer:

  • To notify our readers about an upcoming food/drink event, please post it here.

  • Every week, 1,000+ food and drink events worldwide are posted on our site. The postings are written by event hosts including restaurants, retailers, wineries, brewpubs, festival organizers and food/beverage industry personnel.

  • We're not just about wine. We welcome postings for any event that has a food OR wine OR beer OR spirits theme. For example -- dinners, tastings, classes, festivals, special occasion (holiday) menus, meetings, cooking demonstrations, personal appearances and tours.

  • The food and drink events posted on our website also appear in The Juice, our event notification e-mail.

  • If a food, wine, beer or spirits event is not in our listings, it means the event host has not posted it…yet. You can help: Please mention LocalWineEvents.com to others… and alert us to "missing" events. Thank you!
If you have a question that wasn't answered here, please let us know.

Is there a genetic relationship between these three grape varieties?

Wine Quiz Answer: A. 2 Percent

Teh Pyrenees Orientales are ranked 9th among all of France's winemaking departments in wine production volume, but that relatively high ranking only comprises about 2 percent of the country's total wine output.
