The BVI Tourist Board has accepted an invitation from the BVI Charitable Fund to become the Presenting Sponsor of the 2009/2010 Virgin Islands Wine-makers Dinners. This new partnership between the BVI Tourist Board and the BVI Charitable Fund plans to entice food and wine lovers from around the world to come and visit the BVI before, during and after these dinners. The 2009 Wine-makers Dinners will be held from July 16-19, and December 3-6 at exclusive locations throughout the BVI. It will consist of eight private dinners featuring seven course gourmet meals prepared by master chefs from throughout the world. The cuisine will be matched with fine wines selected by some of the best wine-makers in the world. In addition, the BVI Tourist Board will host a VIP Welcome Reception in honor of all the visiting chefs at the historic Sugar Mill Ruins at Nail Bay, Virgin Gorda. At last year's event, over 600 people came from such diverse locations as France, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia, UK and the US. Proceeds from the event will benefit the BVI Red Cross, St. George's School in Tortola and St. Mary's School in Virgin Gorda.
