There’s been a lot of buzz and construction around the grounds and for good reason! The Big E has completed its installation of the brand-new Big E Wine and Cheese Barn and we can’t wait for it to open during the Fair! The new barn will feature award-winning wines and cheese from the Annual Big E Northeast Gold Wine Competition and Big E Gold Medal Cheese Competition. Stop by during the Fair and sample all New England cheese entries and a selection of Northeast wines. Find your favorite pairings and take them home to share with friends and family.
Step inside the new barn and experience a brief break from the hustle bustle of the Fair. You will temporarily leave the cream puffs and deep fried deliciousness behind and feel like you’ve entered a New England vineyard and specialty cheese shop. Speak with vintners and find the wine that tickles your taste buds and the cheese that suits your palate or favorite homemade recipe.
The new barn will feature a variety of wines, from white and red to sparkling and mead. Try Rhode Island’s Great White Wine from Newport Vineyards or Cape Cod’s award-winning Zinfandel from Truro Vineyards. This new addition to The Big E has something for everyone.
Judging for The Big E Gold Medal Cheese Competition will take place Aug. 23, 2013. We can’t wait to taste this year’s entries!
The Barn is adjacent to the beautiful Mallary Gardens, an oasis of native flowers surrounding a Koi pond created by Picture Perfect Ponds, steps away from our main entrance at Gate 9-A.
