Ready for the wine/food trip of a lifetime?
Join Ernie Loosen and Chef Alan Wong (Pineapple Room Restaurant in Honolulu) for a “Continental Exchange” weekend at Blackberry Farm in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee.

It’s a four-day/three-night experience filled with wine tastings, dinners with special wine pairings, garden tours, and cooking lessons, all created around Chef Wong’s cuisine and Dr. Loosen wines, amid the exquisite beauty and comfort of Blackberry Farm Resort.
You’ll begin your experience at a welcome reception on the iconic Main House veranda with champagne and canapés. Chef Wong and Ernie will be there to greet you, and host Sam Beall will give everyone an introduction.
An opening dinner will follow that will be the perfect welcome to Blackberry Farm with cuisine by Executive Chef Joseph Lenn. Ernie will pair wines to complement Joseph’s Foothills Cuisine. Chef Wong and Ernie will be seated at the table with you, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to enjoy their company and wisdom about food and wine.
