Most wine festivals run a weekend, or maybe a full week. The Boston Harbor Hotel’s 24th Annual Boston Wine Festival, which kicks off Jan. 11, is a full 12 weeks long, with 39 evening events of wine and three themed brunches, ending March 29 with a final reception. The kickoff Jan. 11 is a grand-opening reception in the Boston Harbor Hotel’s Wharf Room. Over the lifetime of the event, which is called the country’s longest-running wine festival more than 90,000 bottles of wine have been opened.

The lineup also includes exclusive dinners, seminars, receptions and brunches hosted by world-wide winemakers, each selected and invited by Chef Daniel Bruce, Harbor Hotel’s chef, who over the years of the event, has created more than 4,000 original dishes (and he’s never repeated a menu), each paired with wines that he said enhances the flavor of the food. Some of the food and wine stars participating this year include Spottswoode Estate Vineyard & Winery; Domenico Clerico Winery; Opus One; Peter Michael; Frog’s Leap, Diamond Creek; Chateauneuf-du-Pape; and Cakebread Cellars. This year’s festival will also see the return of popular themed dinners, including the "Battle of the Cabernets" and "Meritage Madness," and the introduction of a new one, "Pinots: Old World, New World."

To complement the experience, the Spa at Rowes Wharf will feature signature vino-based treatments in conjunction with the wine festival. In addition, Boston Harbor Hotel is offering festival ticket holders a special rate of $220 a night. For information, reservations and ticket prices, visit  www.bostonwinefestival.net.
