winefood-2008-11The annual Aruba Wine, Food & Art Festival in its fifth edition will attract many locals and tourists to the second evening’s event in the Grand Ballroom of the resort.

More than 60 wineries from around the world have arrived on the island in honor of the occasion, prepared to offer their delicious chilled wines which will combine with the resort’s culinary fireworks.

The Westin’s culinary team with Executive Chef Gerard Coste in the lead will set up an exhibition kitchen in the middle of the ballroom serving many specialties, in collaboration with the Aruba Culinary School Students.

The much-anticipated Wine & Food Pairing Exhibition will take place from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Music will be provided by Daniel Aguirre’s Jazz band. 

The Wine & Food Pairing is open to the public and the admission is US$30 per person at the door. Pre-sale tickets are available at the concierge desk for $25 per person.
