We're heading back down to Seaside Florida for the 25th Annual Seeing Red Wine Festival November 5-8.
Here in Nashville, we all love to escape down to Seaside for our beach getaways and we've been going down there each year for one of our FAVORITE festivals! If you've never been, we promise it is well worth the trip.
On Friday, Nov. 6, the Al Fresco Reserve Tasting, from 6 to 8 p.m., is an elegant evening showcasing an incredible selection of library wines, featuring vintages that have been cellared to be uncorked at just the right time. Celebrated local chef, Jim Shirley, will prepare a delicious array of hors d’oeuvres that pair perfectly with the featured wines. The evening is complemented by live jazz music under a clear-topped tent and twinkling lights on Seaside’s Lyceum Lawn. Admission is $200 and a limited number of reservations are available.
The Grand Tasting, from 1 to 4 p.m., on Saturday, Nov. 7, is the main event and features more than 250 wines for tasting. Guests will spend the afternoon strolling through in SEASIDE®’s Central Square sipping an extensive array of highly sought after wines from around the world, while enjoying live music, light bites from South Walton’s leading local restaurants, and the opportunity to purchase wine on-site. General admission is $150 and VIP tickets are $300 and include early admission at 11:30 a.m. as well as access to the VIP tent with a private tasting of rare and premium wines.
On Sunday, Nov. 8, the weekend wraps up with a Celebration of Bubbles, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Great Southern Café in SEASIDE®
