The 33rd Annual Sandestin Wine Festival takes place April 11-14. The festival has been named the Best Annual Event by Destin magazine and the best event in the Visit South Walton Beaches Wine and Food Festival category.
The event, held at the Village of Baytowne Wharf, brings an opportunity for discovery. Four days of unique events open up a wide range of experiences from attending wine dinners with celebrity chefs, participating in preview events throughout the year, and taking part in wine tastings that showcase hundreds of wines.
Wine novices are able to learn more about wines and sample from a comprehensive selection in all varieties, styles and price ranges. Wine aficionados can meet with winemakers, ask detailed questions, and acquire hard to get selections. An added bonus is the opportunity to immediately purchase your favorite selections at the ABC Fine Wine and Spirits Retail Tent at a discounted rate.
Everyone gets to enjoy the live music, interactive experiences at the culinary tents, and shops and dining of the Village of Baytowne Wharf.
