+ Funny person Mo Rocca: He'll be co-hosting the live auction and the "Culinary Tent experience." Rocca is one of the best panelists on Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, appears on CBS Sunday Morning, and hosts My Grandmother's Ravioli on Cooking Channel. (That's him on the right.)
+ Wine expert Kevin Zraly: He's co-hosting the auction and will doing a "One-Hour Wine Expert" seminar. Zraly is an award-winning wine expert, author, and educator -- and in 2011 received a James Beard Lifetime Achievement Award.
The festival includes a bunch of different events, some of which require different tickets. But the big event of the festival for most people is the grand tasting on Saturday -- tickets are $85.
