Welcome to World Food & Wine Festival at Worlds of Fun.
The festival area is set up in Europa - which I think is an excellent location.
There are numerous vendors this year providing wine samplings.
They include local wineries: Arcadian Moon (Higginsville, MO), Belvoir Winery (Liberty, MO), Les Bourgeois (Rocheport, MO), & Somerset Ridge (Paola, KS).
Other wineries represented are from California (the state) as well other countries, including: Italy, Spain and Argentina.
Worlds of Fun has included pairings with these wines that include: BBQ Shrimp & Grits, Mediterranenan Antipasto Skewer, Coconut Chicken with a Mango & Pineapple Chutney, Beef Wellington, Mini Three-Cheese Macaroni Cake Bites, and Mini Cheesecakes.
This is the sampling from Somerset Ridge, the wines include a Buffalo Red and a Citrano. The Citrano was very tasty and the Buffalo Red was semi-sweet. The pairing was a coconut chicken with a chutney. It was pretty tasty.
I really appreciate the park branching out and trying new things. These food events are proving to be very popular, especially with the season pass holders.
