7 Alcohol Trends at The Sun Wine Food Fest 2020  
  The Sun & Wine Food Fest is among the largest and most popular food and drink festivals in Connecticut. Held in an expo hall at the sprawling Mohegan Sun casino, it attracts hundreds of guests who sample more than 1,000 dishes and libations. Many people make an annual tradition of attending. The event is an excellent showcase of current consumer trends. In 2019, The Sun & Wine Food Fest included several low-ABV drinks that proved popular with attendees. A year later, this trend is in full bloom. So what did we see at the 2020 festival? Below are seven trends that stuck out while we walked through the huge expo hall, a handful of side events and the casino itself.
