Grand Gourmet Vintner Dinner – This dinner at Tutto Bene restaurant is the largest wine dinner of the week, both in the number of guests it accommodates (150) and in the amount of money donated to charity (100% of profits). Tutto Bene pairs a celebrity chef with a renowned wine maker and the results always astound! This dinner, held on Tuesday, kicks off the week of indulgence and generosity.


Food Fight – Celebrity and island chefs team together to compete in a hilarious series of challenges that has had past competitors swimming in the ocean, cracking conch and answering tricky questions like “What cut of meat did Lady Gaga wear?” The Food Fight is held on Wednesday evening at Eat@CaneBay, a popular beach bar and restaurant.


Wine Seminars – Visiting vintners and wine experts provide wine seminars for both the trade and wine aficionados. Seminars are held on Wednesday starting in the late morning and ending in the early afternoon.


Wine Dinners – Local restaurants support the week by offering spectacular wine dinners featuring a special menu, guest vintner and great entertainment.  Wine dinners are held in three different restaurants on Wednesday.


A Taste of St. Croix – The event that started the entire program is A Taste of St. Croix, a one-night event held at a beachside resort where local restaurants provide attendees with a sampling of their delights. Winemakers, rum distilleries, and breweries also offer samples of their creations. This event sells out in 20 minutes and more than 1500 guest attend. Visiting celebrity chefs, winemakers and VIP’s are the judges.


Cork & Fork Dinners – On Friday night, there are three Cork & Fork dinners. These elegant, intimate dinners of 12 to 20 guests have a visiting celebrity chef paired with a visiting winemaker. The dinners have occurred in historic homes, organic farms and even in the ballroom of the Government House.


Sunset BBQ – Held at historic Fort Fredrik during Sunset Jazz, this event features three bars, two grilling stations, a dessert station and room to roam and dance.


Kids Cooking – Introduced in 2011, celebrity and local chefs offer simple, fun and healthy cooking classes for children. These occur Saturday morning.


Wine in the Warehouse – Saturday night brings everyone together for live music, wine tastings, cocktail samplings, small bites and great fun in the warehouse of a local wine distributor.


Cuisine on The Green Held on Sunday, Carambola Golf Course hosts a fun tournament with bites and booze at the tees. Non-golfers are invited to samples the tastings via a golf-cart tour.
