Grand Tasting at Mizner Park caps 10th annual Boca Bacchanal

BOCA RATON – Hundreds of food and wine lovers flocked to Mizner Park Sunday for the Grand Tasting event, the final segment of the three-part Boca Bacchanal Winefest.

The celebration, which benefits the Heritage Education and Historic Preservation Programs of the Boca Raton Historical Society, began Friday with the Vintner Dinners hosted in private residences, featuring the talents of the highly acclaimed chefs and vintners.

The excitement continued Saturday evening as Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, summoned people to celebrate at the Bacchus Bash.

The weekend concluded outdoors on Sunday afternoon in an artfully tented space at Mizner Park Amphitheatre. The popular Grand Tasting featured the specialties of 30 outstanding local chefs and scores of top vintners.  Each year more than 1,200 guests sip, savor and stroll their way through this delicious alfresco luncheon on the green.
