Festival friends it’s a treat when we get to talk to a founder of an iconic festival and on this episode of FestivalPass Stories, our Host, Pat Tully sits down with the founder of the iconic South Beach Wine & Food Festival and the New York City Wine & Food Festival, Lee Schrager. Lee takes us back to the beginning days of SOBE WFF and tells us how it all started on the gorgeous beaches of Miami and then gives us the inspiration behind franchising that festival to NYC. Schrager’s official title is the Chief Communications Officer & SVP Social Responsibility for Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits, the world’s largest distributor of wines & spirits. But the title he is most excited about right now is as founder of the brand-new inaugural Nassau Paradise Island Wine & Food Festival (NPIWFF) taking place at the iconic Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. Headlining chefs at NPIWFF include Aaron Sanchez, Andrew Zimmern, Alex Guarnaschelli, Michael White, Jose Andres, Duff Goldman and more! Besides the chefs tastings, there are events including the Rum Runner’s Walking Tour, Sunset Dinner Cruises, wine tastings and more. Schrager’s wine & food festivals have always been focused on culinary greatness and giving back. NPIWFF will continue that tradition partnering with the Blue Project Foundation saving sea species and their extraordinary habitats.
