Did you say Wine, Food, Wine, and Adult conversation? Wow what an amazing dream I was just reading! No, really this would be a fantastic dream for my self and my husband. We have 5 children ranging from 4 to 17, and we just recently took in a homeless woman and her two childern. So I became a mom of 10! To have someone wait on me for just an evening would be a blessing sent from Heaven =)

I would love to win this because besides day trips & visiting my significate other's famiiy in NC , I've NEVER been on a vacation. My son died @ the age of 22 on 10/29/09 and and not long after that I was very ill and almost died myself. Since getting better I've been reinventing myself & celebrating life. This would be a fantastic way to celebrate life .

My husband and I enjoy preparing meals together for our friends, and pairing the meals with wines. We've always wanted to go the New England area in the fall. It would be a wonderful learning experience to attend this exciting event!

I have 24 weeks to go until graduation from nursing school :) This would be an amazing "early" graduation gift.

I have never been to R.I. before and this quick get away sounds perfect. I also have never been to a wine festival before so this would be double the experience for me.

Thank you for the chance to win!

I would absolutely love to go to the festival because I haven't been to Newport since I was a little girl. My aunt and uncle used to take me camping in Rhode Island some summers during my childhood since my parents couldn't. We would go over the "big bridge" to Newport and drive around looking at all the gorgeous mansions. The homes we so large and amazing to me, being such a young girl I had never seen such architectural beauty! I have not had the oppurtunity to visit Newport since my young childhood years. It would be such an amazing experience to now be able to see these wonderful mansions through my adult eyes and enjoy the wine, food and music in an absolutely perfect setting! It would definelty be a priceless and memorable experience!

I would love to win because I have heard so much about this festival but could never afford to go. I blog and have been writing more about New England travel and food and this would be a great place to checkout and write about too. Oh, and did I mention I love food and wine? :-)

We were debating on what to do next weekend with our extended time off.
We would be overwhealmed to participate at the Newport Mansions Wine and Food Festival. It seems like the perfect weekend for experiencing some of the finest food and wine from around the world in the historic haven of Newport. The special gusts attending would be the icing on the cake.
Thanks for the offer for a great giveaway!

My sister and I are the ultimate foodies as well as chef groupies and have traveled to many of the food and wine festivals on the east coast. However, we have never been to Newport and would love the opportunity to go.


I would love to be able to take my mom and sister, they LOVE visiting the wineries and I always go as the designated driver! I LOVE the K-cups and drink lots of coffee, so this would be a great trip!

Have attended wine and food festivals in Napa Valley, CA, and would love to see how Newport's would compare. And ... hubby and I are dying to see the Newport mansions again!


Oh this would be a wonderful trip for just my husband and I! We love food, we love wine and we love exploring new places! I am in love with wine and always dying to learn more and more about it. This would be a great festival to be able to attend to taste different wines from all over. It's also a new place we have never been before so it'll definitely be an adventure!


Having never been, it sounds like an amazing time! I would love to experience it!

I'd absolutely be THRILLED to attend any of the events during Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival. Sounds like the perfect way to spend a weekend learning and enjoying amazing food and fantastic wines while speaking to top chefs. Plus, since we live in Los Angeles County this would be the perfect weekend getaway to explore Newport Beach through food and with locals! Cheers!


My wife and I went to Newport last October as a mini-honeymoon, and I've been trying to convince her to go back for our one year anniversary. Help me persuade her!
