WineFest at St Michaels is BACK! Wine will be tasted, wine personalities will be there, and over 60 wines of VIP status will be tasted from many countries around the world. Some of these wines are among Wine Spectator top 25 wines. This VIP event will be held at the Old Brick Inn in the town of St. Michaels, Maryland, April 30 and May 1, 2022. If you have experienced Winefest before and have been excited about the VIP portion, then this is the event for you! You will experience highly rated US and International wines, as well as regional food specialties to compliment your tasting. Based upon bookings at the Old Brick Inn, there may be very limited sales of day tickets. Visit our website frequently to watch all of our events unfold. Also feel free to call the Old Brick Inn for more info. The phone number is 410-745-3323.
You will be tasting different wine both Saturday and Sunday at scheduled times and this will be a seated, curated event. You will relax in comfort and hear ideas and concepts from winemakers and other wine personalities. As you taste, you will be able to compare and discuss taste profiles with the staff. The Old Brick Inn wine venue will retail its wine at special WineFest pricing both Saturday and Sunday. This VIP tasting venue will be showcasing premium wines often not available in Maryland. More information and tickets are available for purchase at www.winefestatstmichaels.com.
To accommodate the current situation, we have chosen exceptionally made wines with the ability to be enjoyed now or cellared for years to come. We have priced these wines aggressively to encourage our guests to purchase a wide variety of these highly sought after, limited production wines, many producing as few as 150 - 300 cases per year.
All of the wines will be featured at the Old Brick Inn Garden Patio, which is normally the VIP venue for previous Winefest events. There will be very limited seating, in an outdoor tented environment. Every period will be limited to the number of guests we can allow with the proper social distancing. The ticket will allow you to safely enjoy more than 60 wines over two days. Each day we will present about 30 wines for your review and enjoyment, accompanied by small tastes to appreciate the pairing opportunities. The first period will begin about 11:30am, and the second period will begin about 3pm. Each ticket entitles the holder to attend one period on each day, both Saturday and Sunday. Attendees at the first session on Saturday will attend the second session on Sunday, and vice versa.
This event will permit many of the wine reps, winemakers, and winery owners to present their wines in person, allowing them to share their personal stories and answer questions you may have while still maintaining appropriate social distancing.
In order to maintain our safety protocols:
· Tastings are limited to guests with advance tickets and a reservation.
· All Tastings will be seated/tutored. No standing permitted.
· The wines tasted will be retailed and can be stored for pickup on Sunday.
Each ticket includes all of the tastings, a small snack plate and a $75 credit on a wine purchase of $300 or more.
We have selected highly awarded and notable wines in many varieties, and each of these wineries represents different styles and many different growing regions. Some, but not all of the wineries planning to attend are being posted on the Winefest WEB site as we get closer. The Winefest web site is www.winefestatstmichaels.com.
We feel that these wines to be tasted provide any wine buyer with many choices of wines which they will find appealing. And the wine credit offered with each ticket allows the buyer to gain extra value. Since seating is limited please get your tickets quickly. This festival will sell out quickly.
