The 2nd annual Newport WineFest, unfolding this weekend has already created quite a buzz (no pun intended) with fabulous events and amazing talent including Chef Tiffani Faison (first season of Bravo’s “Top Chef” and “Top Chef All-Stars,” private chef for Will and Jada Smith), Chef Dave Martin (also first season of Bravo’s “Top Chef”) and Chef Todd Winer (worked with Charlie Palmer, Bobby Flay, and Todd English). But the rumors have been swirling most recently about Real Housewife of New York Ramona Singer joining the bill to tout her own line, Ramona Pinot Grigio (which we featured in this post when we interviewed the multi-business mogul and fashion aficionado in March).
Ramona emailed me personally yesterday and today and is looking forward to her Newport weekend. She’ll be pouring her pinot at Friday evening’s Newport UnCorked event, Saturday evening’s Grand Tasting Session II, and the Celebrity Chefs & Prosecco Brunch.
She’s also be appearing on August 19 at Pier Liquors in Narragansett, (29 Pier Market Place, from 4-6pm) and on August 20 at Vicker’s Liquors in Newport (274 Bellevue Avenue in the Bellevue Plaza, from 4-5pm). Turtle time!
