Labor Day weekend at Pinehurst was bursting with Southern flavor.
The Taste of the New South food and wine weekend kicked off Friday with a welcome reception introducing guests to a variety of world-class wines and exceptional craft beers. The event was in full swing when the fun migrated to the Pinehurst Fair Barn for the Carolina Oyster Roast and Pig Pickin.’
Fireside Collective’s bluegrass twang filled the Fair Barn as guests enjoyed roasted oysters, barbecue, smoked salmon and Southern classics like home-style macaroni and cheese. The evening wrapped up with the Sinfully Southern Dessert Bar, which included cocktails that were equally as sweet.
Chefs, winemakers, authors and food educators led 15 sessions that spanned Saturday and Sunday, offering guests an interactive learning experience. With sessions focused on wine, beer, spirits and food, our presenters served up something to suit all tastes.
The wine was the focal point of Saturday’s intimate Vintner’s Dinner presented by Acura. Each of the five courses was be expertly paired to complement the flavor profiles of the wine.
