For the first time in the event's 12-year history, two businesses will be presenting sponsors of Winefest. Gateway Market and West Bank will co-sponsor the 2014 event, which will be held May 31 through June 7. The eight-day festival kicks off with the food and wine classes at Meredith Corp.'s headquarters, and culminates with the Willis Grand Tasting, an evening of wine and hors d'oeuvres from a variety of local restaurants and caterers. Tickets for the festival will go on sale in the spring; however, tickets to the Ernst & Young Wine Flights are on sale now.
