This is the festival’s fifth year. It will feature more than 40 types of wines, craft beers from regional distilleries and spirits and cocktails from distillers in Louisiana and Mississippi. Each night has a different event.

On Friday, Nov. 10, there will be a multicourse dinner prepared by a celebrity guest chef with wine pairings from Napa Valley in California.

“My favorite part of the event is watching people get to taste, enjoy and have a one-on-one interaction with our impressive vendors — whether it be the chef who gets to describe the inspiration behind the dish as the festivalgoer tries it, the wine distributor who finds our guest’s new favorite wine or the brewer who gets to describe their craft. It’s so fun to watch guests and vendors get to connect over food or beverage,” Moss said.
