GRAND WINE TASTINGS FRIDAY, APRIL 16 | 5-8PM SATURDAY, APRIL 17 | 1-4PM The main events, know as our Grand Wine Tastings, showcase more than 500+ domestic and international wines over a two-day span. Guests can enjoy the opportunity to talk to vineyard owners and winemakers about their favorite appellations, or maybe try something new. During the Grand Wine Tastings, guests are also treated to a gourmet experience courtesy of some of the best chefs on the Emerald Coast. Savor South Walton tents are sprinkled within the festival to allow guests to pair delectable bite-sized appetizers with their current glass selection. And, festival favorite, our Champagne tent, returns to the Grand Sandestin Lawn, featuring bubbles and desserts galore. Local and regional music also set the vibe for fun days of discovery. And all ranges of knowledge are encouraged to attend the festival – wine novices to aficionados alike. Festival-goers can learn more about wines and through tasting wines from a comprehensive selection from all major producing countries in all varieties, styles and price ranges. Guest are invited to find a favorite or several. Ticket holders also receive a beautiful Riedel glass etched to commemorate each year’s event for their tastings. The Sandestin Wine Festival is the most established and continuously running wine festival on the Emerald Coast and has affectionately been called the “Kentucky Derby of Wine Festivals” because of its popularity and grandeur.
