Washington, DC Luxury Hotel Sponsors International Wine & Food Festival

Weeklong Event Featured Local Restaurants, Artisan Foods, and Tastings

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Feb 24, 2012) - Washington, DC is not just monuments and museums. Each year, the city hosts the Washington DC International Wine & Food Festival, which fills hotels near the National Mall in Washington, DC with food lovers from around the world.

This February 11th and 12th, the festival returned for another year, and JW Marriott Washington, DC, among Washington, DC luxury hotels, was proud to sponsor this year's event. Partnering with the Wine & Food Festival was a great success because wine appreciation is a passion point of the JW Marriott guest.

The week-long Wine & Food festival celebrates food, wine, and culture around the city, with gourmet food booths featuring new products, offerings from local restaurants on Restaurant Row, wines from around the world, Artisan Row, chef demos, and more.

The festival culminates with the Grand Tasting at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, a premier Washington, DC event space. This 2-day grand finale features the best in food and wine. Join more than 100 wineries from around the globe, all offering tastes of more than 500 rare and loved wines; sample dishes from the best local restaurants; and see what's new with foods from international artisanal purveyors. Every attendee has the chance to interact with and learn from winemakers, and leaves with an etched Washington DC International Wine & Food Festival wine glass.
