North Florida Wine & Food Festival - Evening of Bubbles

I had the priveledge of being selected as the main food photographer for the North Florida Wine & Food Festival in Tallahassee, FL, held at Florida State University's modern University Club Center. This was the second annual celebration held between September 8 - 12 of this year, with days of non-stop champagne, wine, and food!

The first night on September 8th was proclaimed the Evening of Bubbles, which featured over 30 fabulous champagnes and sparkling wines with a variety of delectable appetizers.

Not to mention a selection of sensuous vodka martinis and seasonal beers.

The benefit of the festival is not only to introduce a sophisticated variety of champagnes, wines, and local eateries to attendees, but support and provide FSU's Dedman School of Hospitality students with valuable experience in the industry.

I was excited to cover this event not only to showcase the delicious local variety offered by unique wineries and bistros, but to expand my food comfort zone. I gained valuable photography experience, as well as cataloged a variety of new wines to try and restaurants to visit.

It was wonderful to dress up and experience a night of endless drinks and morsels. Plus they had a fashion show - very chic.

This evening was a wonderful sample of unique drinks and culinary skills, plus a peak at the things to come for the larger events...
