PC Food & Wine Classic
The seventh-annual Park City Food & Wine Classic returns July 7-10, bringing together guests, winemakers and culinary experts to play, wine and dine in Park City. The festival supports a selected nonprofit organization each year; this year, The People’s Health Clinic is featured. The Park City Food & Wine Classic will feature gourmet dinners, educational seminars, outdoor activities and two signature events: The Park City Stroll on Main Street and the Toast of Park City Grand Tasting. Wine industry experts, master sommeliers and renowned chefs will host seminars on topics such as the secrets of food and wine pairing, whiskey, beer, sushi, sake and glassware to educate festival goers on all aspects of culinary appreciation.
Wanna be a sommelier? New for 2011, the Park City Food & Wine Classic will offer an introductory-level sommelier certification course at the Montage in Deer Valley for anyone interested in mastering the art and science of wines and spirits. Participants in the intensive two-day instruction and training session will refine their tasting abilities and study beverage service and wine theory. While most sommelier certification programs take months to complete, this certification program, accredited by the Court of Master Sommeliers, is available for individuals with a strong interest in pursuing an education in wine.
