The chance to sip wine, enjoy some light bites and stroll along the Atlantic City Boardwalk will return in September. Go here for a story about last May’s debut event.
The Atlantic City Alliance announces the return of the DO AC Boardwalk Wine Promenade bringing together all 11 Atlantic City casino resorts to celebrate viniculture and the history, pageantry and energy of Atlantic City on the famed Boardwalk.
The Wine Promenade will take place September 27-28 with Food & Wine joining as the official culinary media partner.
The event features 100 wines presented at multiple destinations along a one-mile stretch of the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Insider access to rare and expensive wines and champagnes handpicked by expert and media personality Leslie Sbrocco plus gourmet bites, live music and breathtaking ocean views combine to create an only-in-Atlantic City spectacular.
The Atlantic City Alliance, the organization behind the successful “Do Anything. Do Everything. Do AC” campaign made the announcement at the destination marketing organizations’ debut at the Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village at the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami, Fla. The Alliance will return to the New York City Wine & Food Festival in October 2014.
“Food & Wine showcases the breadth and depth of AC’s culinary offerings and brings our unique, outdoor wine festival to a national audience of foodies who might not have considered Atlantic City as a foodie destination,” said Liza Cartmell Atlantic City Alliance President. “We decided to make this announcement at South Beach Wine & Food Festival because it is one of the premier food events in the country.”
