The GourmetFest is an international food and wine festival in the quaint village of Carmel-by-the-Sea. The inaugural year of the festival will take place over a four day period in late March 2014. The festival will feature the talents of Relais & ChÃ¢teaux Chefs from around the world. Events include an opening night welcome party, a cooking demo, wine tastings, off-site tours combined with exciting lunches, featured chefs, world-class wine dinners, a rarities dinner, and a closing seafood grill and Champagne tasting. The festival will also celebrate the 60th anniversary of Relais & ChÃ¢teaux.
This year’s festival will benefit the non-profits for the Carmel Chamber of Commerce, Rancho Cielo and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Enjoy the beautiful properties of Relais & ChÃ¢teaux while supporting these great organizations and their missions.
