As Goethe once said, “Wine rejoices the heart of man and joy is the mother of all virtues.” The saying couldn’t be more apropos in Vermont than during the Burlington Wine & Food Festival. The preliminary events, many of them intimate gatherings with prestigious vintners at area restaurants, have been happening all week. But on Saturday the Grand Tasting will take over the Burlington waterfront, offering seminars with winemakers and sips of more than 300 wines. Rounding out the event, specialty treats from restaurants including Misery Loves Co. and Hen of the Wood, as well as north-of-the-border all-star chef Charles-Emmanuel Pariseau (winner of “Chopped Canada”), ensure that patrons stay sated and happy.
