   The wide world of wines is yours to explore at the 3rd Annual Wine and Food Festival.

   This is Rochester's premier event dedicated to the pleasure of wine, food, and luxury living. Proceeds from ticket sales benefit the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center Comprehensive Campaign at the University of Rochester Medical Center.

   The 3rd Annual Wine and Food Festival will feature more than 100 tasting booths, giving guests the opportunity to sample hundreds of wines from local, national and international vintners. In one evening, you can explore several new wines you may enjoy.

   Rochester's most generous restaurants also provide guests with tempting treats for your palate.

   Retailers also bring some of the most inventive gifts for the upcoming holidays… many of them wine-themed for the connoisseur on your list.

   Whether you enjoy red or white, there are plenty of flavorful types of wine to satisfy the desire of any palette.
