On Saturday, August 29th, from noon to six, Rockville Town Center will be the site of Un-Corked, its annual wine and music festival, now in its third year. From concert to cooking demonstrations and wine tastings, there will be a little something fun for everyone. Admission is free for concerts, wine seminars and cooking demonstrations. The $10 cost to participate in the wine tasting includes a commemorative wine glass for the first 2,000 paid attendees. Ten Maryland wineries will participate in the festival and Frederick Cellar will lead a discussion on the vineyards and wine grapes of Maryland at 3:30. Between 1-2 pm, chef Patrice Olivon, Program Director of Culinary Arts at L’Academie de Cuisine in Gaithersburg, will lead a cooking demonstration. Chef Olivon boasts an impressive resume, having spent twelve years as sous-chef at the White House during the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administration as well as twelve years as executive chef at the French Embassy.
All excellent reasons to visit Rockville, don’t you think?
