Founded in 2011, Greenwich Wine + Food was created by Unger Publishing (a women owned, women run business) in order to create unique in-person experiences unlike anything else. At the heart of the weekend was the core mission of GWF: to continue to shine a light on the incredibly rich culinary landscape in our area, the people that are innovating the way we think about wine, food, and drinks all while raising important funds for causes that lift-up those in need. Over the last decade, the GWF team has been dedicated to bringing unforgettable experiences to foodies and fans alike.
