One of the hottest culinary trends in the country is gourmet food trucks, and this Saturday, Nov. 10, that trend will roll onto the streets of Downtown Alpharetta. The Vintage Corks and Gourmet Trucks event will blend some of the hottest food trucks in Metro Atlanta together with expertly chosen wine pairings, and it will all be centered on Milton Avenue starting at 1 p.m.
“From the Food Network to the streets of the most stylish cities in America, gourmet food trucks are one of the hippest culinary trends you can find,” said Kim Dodson, Special Events manager for the City of Alpharetta. “Today’s food trucks are a true gourmet experience that is nothing like the old sandwich trucks seen on construction sites. We are excited to bring this event to Downtown Alpharetta and introduce residents to some very talented chefs.”
The event will feature five of the area’s best known gourmet food trucks:
- Hail Caesar
- Happy Belly
- The Blaxican
- Wow Food Truck
- Yum Yum Cupcake
Wine pairings will be selected by Vino 100 and Sip Wine. Musical acts and street entertainers will also be on hand to create a delicious family event.
Each truck will feature a $3 food tasting and a $3 half-glass wine pairing. Patrons can also elect to skip the tasting and purchase a full plate and glass of wine from any of the vendors. Access to the event site is free of charge. The event runs from 1-7 p.m.
