Eat Drink RI Festival 2017

This year’s festival kicks off with Rhode Island’s first Sommelier Smackdown! at the gorgeous, newly renovated Café at Easy Entertaining! Co-hosted by Certified Sommeliers Ian Magiros of M.S. Walker and Jonathan Feiler of Rhode Island Distributing, this brand new event will pit a handful of our state’s best Certified Sommeliers against each other in a wine theory quiz, a blind wine tasting, and a collaboration with a local chef! Some of our favorite chefs will present small bites with a wine pairing that the sommeliers believe is the perfect complement. Guests will vote on the fan favorite pairing, and judges will tally the points of all three components of the competition to decide who reigns supreme in RI’s wine world.

Competitors in this first Sommelier Smackdown!:

If you’re passionate about wine and would love to learn more about how sommeliers refine their palates and sharpen their ability to recall wines, then this is the event for you.

Sommelier Smackdown! tickets are $50 and include wine tastings, food & wine pairing, and hors d’oeuvres.
