The glass will be more than half full at the second-annual Savor Minnesota. Showcasing local wine, food, and beer, a variety of Minnesota producers will gather at Canterbury Park on Saturday, April 2, 2011, from 1-5pm.

“These industries are seeing the benefit of the local movement, and it’s time to showcase outstanding producers,” says Cassie McLemore, sales manager of Northern Vineyards and Savor Minnesota event planner. “Savor Minnesota will spotlight more than 40 exhibitors, each with their own unique products.”

Participants will have the opportunity to eat and drink their way through various vendors, from Italian and Chinese to chocolate and strudel. Twenty-one Minnesota wineries and Summit Brewing will be winning guests over with their local libations.

Savor Minnesota is sponsored by Minnesota Grown and the Minnesota Farm Winery Association. Each attendee will receive a wine glass, reusable shopping bag, and booklet of the event with over $100 in discounts from the participating exhibitors.

Tickets can be purchased for $35 in advance or $40 at the door, and all participants must be 21 to attend. For more information on Savor Minnesota, including a complete list of exhibitors or to purchase tickets, visit
