For its first annual Vermonters Feeding Vermonters fundraiser, Cork Wine Bar & Market has rallied nearly 30 food businesses from Lamoille County and surrounds to support the Vermont Foodbank. Whet your palate with sparkling wines, plus cheeses and charcuterie from Sage Farm Goat Dairy and Vermont Salumi. Then sample snacks courtesy of Stowe Seafood, Blackback Pub, Edson Hill, Elmore Mountain Bread, Piecasso, Sushi Yoshi, the Bench, Tres Amigos and many others. Thirsty yet? There'll be sips from Stowe-area breweries including the Alchemist, Lost Nation Brewing, Stowe Cider and, of course, vintages from Cork's enviable collection of natural wines.
