Sandestin Wine Festival

What: Sandestin Wine Festival

Wine lovers will be swirling about for the 30th Annual Sandestin Wine Festival held April 14-17 at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. The festival has become a tradition over the years and is widely renowned as the "Kentucky Derby of Wne Festivals."     
Daily Grand Wine Tastings in the Village of Baytowne Wharf will feature the pouring of hundreds of domestic and international wines. The four-day lineup of events, tastings and entertainment is the longest-running and most established wine festival in Northwest Florida and is presented by Coastal Living magazine.

The Sandestin Wine Festival at Baytowne Wharf brings an opportunity for discovery. 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 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. Non-drinking festival guests are welcome to attend the Grand Wine Tasting with their friends at no charge--they will not receive a wristband or tasting glass. Must be at least 21 years of age to taste wines.
