Uniting all of Atlantic City’s casino resorts in a grand celebration of viniculture and AC’s thriving, world-class culinary scene, this year’s DO AC Boardwalk Wine Promenade will feature more than 100 wines presented at multiple destinations along a one-mile stretch of Atlantic City’s famed Boardwalk. Sponsored by FOOD & WINE, the Promenade returns September 27-28, capping off a summer packed with a variety of exciting outdoor events. Guests will get insider access to new vintages, rare and expensive wines and Champagnes handpicked by expert and media personality Leslie Sbrocco — plus gourmet bites, live music and breathtaking ocean views.
Food and dining are core destination definers for Atlantic City. With acclaimed national chefs and locally sourced Jersey Fresh ingredients that are nourished by the sea as well as abundant local farmland and vineyards, AC serves up some of the freshest and tastiest seafood, produce, reds, whites and bubblies available along the eastern seaboard. The early fall outdoor wine stroll allows guests to enjoy a taste of the bounty available in Atlantic City all year round.
“FOOD & WINE is excited to partner with the Atlantic City Alliance on the second annual Boardwalk Wine Promenade,” said Christina Grdovic, FOOD & WINE SVP/Publisher. “The setting of the seaside and the iconic Boardwalk provide a fantastic backdrop for the festival.”
