ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., Feb. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Atlantic City Alliance announces the return of the DO AC Boardwalk Wine Promenade bringing together all 11 Atlantic City casino resorts to celebrate viniculture and the history, pageantry and energy of Atlantic City on the famed Boardwalk. The Wine Promenade will be held September 27-28 with FOOD & WINE joining as the official culinary media partner.
The event features 100 wines presented at multiple destinations along a one-mile stretch of the famed Atlantic City Boardwalk. Insider access to rare and expensive wines and champagnes handpicked by expert and media personality Leslie Sbrocco plus gourmet bites, live music and breathtaking ocean views combine to create an only-in-Atlantic City spectacular.
The Atlantic City Alliance, the organization behind the successful "Do Anything. Do Everything. Do AC" campaign made the announcement at the destination marketing organizations' debut at the Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village at the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami, Florida this weekend. The Alliance will return to the New York City Wine & Food Festival in October 2014.
"FOOD & WINE showcases the breadth and depth of AC's culinary offerings and brings our unique, outdoor wine festival to a national audience of foodies who might not have considered Atlantic City as a foodie destination," said Liza Cartmell Atlantic City Alliance President. "We decided to make this announcement at South Beach Wine & Food Festival because it is one of the premier food events in the country. Everyone in the food scene attends. Plus 80% of attendees are from AC's key market of New York."
Food and dining are core destination definers for AC. 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.
"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."
