A wine and food lover’s dream will come true on February 17, 2018 during the Rancho Mirage Wine and Food Festival at the Rancho Mirage Amphitheater and Community Park. Guests will get a chance to sample over 200 incredible wines and cuisine from 15 of Rancho Mirage’s very best chefs. Award winning wineries will be pouring their world-class wines from Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, Lodi, Washington State, The Santa Lucia Highlands, and Temecula. These passionate winemakers and winery representatives will be offering practical knowledge while sharing their delicious wines.
The Rancho Mirage Wine and Food Festival (RMWFF) is about people coming together to celebrate a shared passion; a love for great wine and mouth-watering gourmet food. The Festival offers a fantastic variety of delicious culinary delights from wonderful Rancho Mirage restaurants: Acqua California Bistro, Bernie’s, BluEmber-at The Omni, Brandini Toffee, Catalan, Flemings, Dringk, Haus of Poke, Kobe Steakhouse, Maracas, Norma’s Italian Kitchen, PF Changs, Pinzimini-at the Westin, Roy’s, The Slice, The EDGE Steakhouse-Ritz Carlton and Wally’s Desert Turtle. The event will also feature the latest restaurant opening in Rancho Mirage Feb 23rd, “The Craft Rancho Mirage” (corner of Bob Hope & Frank Sinatra in the S Club).
To add fun and excitement to the event, a steady stream of live, upbeat musical entertainment will be provided so guests can relax or dance the afternoon away. The RMWFF is also an event that supports our local charities. When you place your bid at the Rancho Mirage Silent Auction, 100% of proceeds will help important, local causes continue their work in the Greater Palm Springs Area. The Desert AIDS Project is the 2018 featured charity! 100% of all proceeds from the silent auction and a portion of tickets sales will be donated to this Coachella Valley charity and will help them provide support for those living with, affected by, or at-risk for HIV or AIDS.
