The Grand Vintner’s Dinners, now a Winter Wine Festival tradition, fully express the epitome of the Festival’s philosophy on the marriage of food and wine. These four-course dinners bring guests one step closer to the winemaking experience. Each dinner starts with a meet and greet wine reception with  our guest host and passed hors d’oeuvres. 

Wentworth by the Sea’s Executive Chef Ken Lingle presents a carefully selected menu to enhance each wine. By tasting the wines first he creates a a perfect pairing that brings out the best of the wine and food.  One makes the other better. Service is in the dramatic presidential style by a highly trained staff in the Grand Ballroom, a spectacle not to be missed.
