Windows on Minnesota, Marquette Hotel
50th Floor IDS CENter
Following tradition, we'll uncork the Beaujolais Nouveau from George Duboeuf and keep it flowing all evening. As a new twist, we'll expand to a wide range of wines expertly selected by our partner, The Wine Company.
Seven of the Twin Cities' top chefs will launch this year's Fête du Vin with a lavish array of appetizers. Our list of notable participating restaurants and bakeries include Vincent, a Restaurant, Meritage, Grand Cafe, Barbette, Heidi's, The Barbary Fig, Chez Arnaud, and Rustica Bakery. Most chefs will be present. Click here for more details.
Along with imaginative food and wine pairings, we've curated a uniquely Gallic Silent Auction, including destination hotel packages, restaurant gift certificates, and private reserve French wines from connoisseur Richard Korinke. Click here for the complete listing.
