Uncork some fun in the Sun this spring at The Sandestin Wine Festival! In its 34th year, the Sandestin Wine Festival is one of the most established and continuously running coastal wine festivals in the region as evidenced by its continued success; thousands know there’s no substitute for this coveted four-day event that takes place in the charming setting of The Village of Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin.

For years, April has been a highly anticipated month for local and visiting wine enthusiasts. Regarded as one of the top wine festivals in the country and known as the “Kentucky Derby of Wine Festivals,” the festival offers wine aficionados a wide range of experiences!
The main events, the Grand Wine Tastings, showcase more than 500 domestic and international wines throughout the weekend. You will enjoy the opportunity to talk to vineyard owners and wine makers about their favorite appellations in all varieties, styles and price ranges, and perhaps try something new. Treat yourself, family and friends to a gourmet experience courtesy of some of the best chefs on the Emerald Coast from your favorite local restaurants who pair delectable bite-sized appetizers with their current glass selections—the Savor South Walton experience!

A new festival favorite, the Bubbly & Boozy tent, returns to the Grand Sandestin Lawn, featuring bubbles and specialty liquors. Local and regional music also set the vibe for fun days of discovery.

As we look back over the years, it’s amazing to witness an event that has aged to perfection— just like a fine wine. Join wine novices and connoisseurs for a picture-perfect series of events featuring one-of-a-kind seminars, wine dinners, grand wine tastings and culinary experiences for which the festival is known and which lends to its popularity.
Benefitting the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast and Sandestin Foundation for Kids, the Sandestin Wine Festival will deliver an enjoyable weekend with amazing food, wine and friends!
