The Tanglewood Wine & Food Classic 2014, scheduled for August 7th through the 10th, is a four-day celebration of wines from around the world paired with locally sourced cuisine as prepared by celebrity chefs, and all on the incomparable Tanglewood grounds.
If that doesn’t get you running towards the Berkshires, nothing will.

With all the great wine and food, along with a host of celebrity chefs, vintners, food and drink scholars, and more, who wouldn’t look forward to the event’s annual return?
