The Slow and Sinful Gala is back on the calendar and will be held November 29th at Highline Hall in Wellington; doors open at 7 pm. The evening will feature sinfully delicious offerings, both savoury and sweet from some of the best chefs working in the County today. Each culinary item will be matched to a local, champagne-style wine from our very own terroir.
Sparkling wine is a growing sector of the County wine industry with 8-10 sparkling wines now being produced in a variety of styles including: méthode champenoise, méthode ancestral, Charmat and Prosecco, award winners among them. This year we’ve added a new sparkling cider from The Old Third that was recently rated 92 by Michael Pinkus, on its first release.
Join the Slow Food the County group Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/5483052782/ and follow the developments as we confirm new and returning local chefs and wineries.
Coveted items from local artists and vendors will be offered for auction and have, in the past, included paintings and sculpture, dinners, sporting-event tickets, food baskets, and spa services. The bidding can get quite competitive but is all part of the fun.
Little Bluff will provide music for the evening and the dancers in the crowd will find their upbeat music conducive to that activity. Last year’s event closed with a packed dance floor.
Profits from the event go to the many agricultural and healthy food endeavors that Slow Food the County supports each year. For more information see the Programs tab – Where the Money Goes – on this website.
