21st Annual Santa Fe Wine & Chile Festival
The second most favorite event in Santa Fe for guests of the Hacienda Nicholas Bed & Breakfast Inn, after Indian Market, is the upcoming Wine and Chile Festival. This event, now in its 21st year, features five days of fabulous wine tastings and some of the best food the town has to offer.
The festival is a food and wine connoisseur's Disneyland, with cooking demonstrations, wine seminars and a myriad of special luncheons and dinners at Santa Fe's most highly-acclaimed restaurants. Choose from Wine Dinners at Amavi, Restaurant Martin, The Compound and many more top Santa Fe Restaurants. Capping off this glorious five-day abundance of food and wine is the Grand Food & Wine Tasting, where guests savor food from 75 of Santa Fe's best restaurants and great vintages from 90 world-class wineries. These festivities take place under huge tents at the Santa Fe Opera, with its scenic mountain vistas and dramatic sunset view enhancing the evening's enjoyment.
Because this is such a popular event, tickets tend to sell out. If you are planning on attending, I advise getting your tickets right away.
