Boca Bachannal, the three-day celebration of wine and food, is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a pretty impressive lineup of events. Tastings, dinners, and seminars start on Friday, March 23rd and culminate with a grand tasting on Sunday, March 25th. Proceeds from the events benefit the Boca Raton Historical Society.
The Friday evening vintner dinners allow diners to enjoy a wine and food pairing at some of the most beautiful private homes in Boca Raton. Guests can choose from six different dinners, with Italian, country, and Greek themes. Tickets are $300 per person.
The Saturday evening Bacchus Bash pays homage to the Roman god of wine.
The event, at the Boca Raton Resort, features a wine
reception followed by a multi-course dinner prepared by the resort's
executive chef, Andrew Roenbeck. A silent auction and live music by the
Will Bridges Band rounds out the night. Tickets are $250 per person,
and include valet parking.
The Sunday Boca Bacchanal grand tasting, at the Mizner Park Amphitheatre from noon - 3 p.m., is the most wallet-friendly event of
the weekend. For $85 in advance ($100 at the gate), taste 140 featured
wines and food from 30 local restaurants including Philippe Chow,
Trulucks, Max's Grille, Oceans 234, City Oyster, and Brooks Restaurant.
