If the thought of winding your way through stands of artisanal food purveyors and more than 100 wineries doesn’t get your heart pumping and your stomach grumbling, then I don’t know what will. The Washington DC International Food & Wine Festival is returning for the 13th year.

Everything from olive oil producers to chocolatiers, along with local restaurants, will be taking over the Ronald Reagan Building from February 11-12, 2012. Plus, there will be tastings for more than 600 wines from across the globe, along with a beer garden complete with craft beers, mixology lessons, and cooking demonstrations.

Tickets are $85 for Saturday, $80 for Sunday or $145 for both days. The IWFF runs from 2 – 6 PM on both days. As a We Love DC reader, you can get $10 off of grand tasting tickets by using the code WEDC10 now until February 9th. Happy wining and dining!

Marissa was born and bred in New Jersey, but moved to DC for undergrad at GWU (Go Colonials, go!), fell in love with the District and learned that there was life and civilization beyond New York City. She loves eating at white-tablecloth-three-forks-at-your-place-setting restaurants, but she’ll also be the first to suggest we scarf down some chili dogs at 2 am. Simply put, she loves all things food. You can also read about why she loves DC. Follow her on Twitter and email her at mbialecki (at) welovedc.com.
