The 32nd Annual Sandestin Wine Festival will take place April 12-15, 2018. The Sandestin Wine Festival has been named the “Best Annual Event” by Destin Magazine, and is known as the Best event in the Visit South Walton Beaches Wine and Food Festival area.
The Sandestin Wine Festival at 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 enjoy meeting winemakers, asking detailed questions, and acquiring 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.
The Village of Baytowne Wharf is always open to the public. Even during special events, guests are welcome to visit the shops and merchants. Visit their website http://www.sandestinwinefestival.com to purchase tickets and find out their schedule of events. Non drinking festival guests are welcome to attend the Grand Wine Tasting with their friends at no charge–they will not receive a wristband.
