The “Grand” in the title is probably an understatement. More wine than you have likely ever seen in one place, and more food from New Orleans’ finest chefs than you will ever experience again. The massive Hall J in the Convention Center is packed to the rafters with offerings that show why New Orleans is one of the greatest food cities on the planet, and the wines brought in by wineries from around the world stand very well alongside the cuisine. It’s an overload of riches, all brought to this place just for you. And it likely will take you two days to do it justice.
