We can’t remedy every headache, but this year Drync will be at the Atlanta Food and Wine Festival to help you avoid at least two – remembering that fantastic wine you tried…. and being able to buy it again!
Drync is a free mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android that lets you take a picture of a wine label and obtain details on the wine, save your notes and personal ratings, share them with friends and purchase the wine instantly. Be sure to download it before you get to the event!
In addition to offering instant image recognition of wines at the festival, Drync will feature a sampling of wines from the event in the app in its Atlanta food and Wine List, and Southern BBQ-friendly Wine List, which includes all southern wines in honor of the event.
Over the course of the weekend, attendees who come to the Grand Tasting with the Drync app downloaded on their mobile device will receive a complimentary glass of Campo Viejo Cava Brut from Drync, and all guests will receive free shipping through June 30th with promo code: AFW14.
Throughout the event, wines tasted by attendees will be posted on a live activity feed in the app, and guests will be encouraged to share their favorite wines on social media. The first 50 people to tweet 5 wines through the Drync app will win a “Get a Wine Life” tee shirt. In addition, anyone who tweets wines through the Drync app to #AFWF14 during the festival will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate to Drync. One winner will be chosen at random daily.
Drync’s instant image recognition of over 2 million wine labels works doesn’t only work on wine bottles – you can also scan wine labels from print advertisements or digital screens and if you can’t reach the bottle, you can always text search for the wine name. Just do it before you leave the table, so you don’t forget what it was!
Big Green Egg is extremely excited to sponsor the Big Green Egg® Grilling Terrace at the Loews Hotel. It’s very special to us to sponsor this in our home city and we hope that you’ll take some time to stop by and see what the EGG is all about. And if you already know what the EGG is about, then we don’t have tell you twice to come by to hang out!
At the Tasting Tents Big Green Egg will be hosting three talented chefs throughout the festival. Doug Goolsby, Chef D, Big Green Egg will be there Friday and is one of our incredibly talented Big Green Egg Cooking Academy chefs and is always a pleasure to watch live because of his humor and ability to interact with the crowd. Robert Gerstenecker, Executive Chef, Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta will be there Saturday and if you think a meal at the Four Seasons is a treat, then you won’t want to miss Robert at AFWF. Linkie Marais, Lifestyle Expert and Celebrity Chef will be finishing up the weekend with even more amazing food. Linkie was a finalist on the eighth season of Food Network Star and often talks about the versatility of the Big Green Egg.
We’re looking forward to meeting you at the festival, so stop by and enjoy some quality time with the EGG!
Virginia Wine Festival - Looking 4 Food info
Hi, has anyone been to Virginia Wine Festival before?
The website says "No Picnic Basket Allowed," and "lots of bistro tables but you have to be quick to get them."
I love wine but cannot drink just wine all day long.
How is the food served at the Festival?
Is it "Fee-base" food? Or, anyone can grab a snack if available?
And, quality of food?
Any input is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Arts and Wine Festival review
I went to our local Arts and Wine Festival this weekend, as I have done over the years. I have even sold my work at this event many years back. This is south of SFO but this group runs most of the major such festivals all over the Bay Area and beyond.
What I saw was so disappointing. There were hardly any arts and crafts made and shown by artists. Most of the booths were pre-made items sold for dirt cheap and probably were imports. I'm talking things like sunglasses and clothes obviously not made here.
As for the wine, there was one booth to get wine. No vineyards were represented as you might expect at a festival with such a name, especially when we are so close to the wine country
Lots of recs--ashland has great food!
Whentever i go to ashland--i must go to gepettos and have the cream cheese won tons with spicy mustard.
try the oregon cabaret theater in the old pink church-food wine and GREAT shows and earier to get tix than the festival:)
crater lake could be quite cold at this point (there is snow there even in the summer) so ahem, dress warm for that bike ride. an alternative idea might be to ride around jacksonville-you could actually ride there from ashland if you want--then you could explore wine and food on your bike-- jacksonville is a wonderful historic gold mining town. there might also be some music or dance at the peter britt festival in j'ville a wonderful outdoor venue where you can have a fabulous picnic on the green hillside and watch a show
