For the 26th year in a row the quaint, pastel-colored, beachside town of Seaside, Florida will be hosting the Seeing Red Wine Festival in picturesque downtown November 3 - 6. If you know anything about Seaside, you know this charming town is well worth the trip to momentarily escape reality and instead delight your tastebuds and your sense of adventure at this critically acclaimed event.
We were fortunate enough to take the trip down there last year for the 25th annual Seeing Red Wine Festival, and we're just as thrilled to be back this year for the festival's 26th celebration. O&S's Seersucker Candy Co. line will be providing boozy Salted Bourbon Caramel Truffles for the Al Fresco Reserve Tasting on Friday night, an event featuring highly allocated and reserve wines as well as delicious bites and appetizers while accompanied by live music. Tickets to this special event are going quickly - so grab yours here!
As a way to show what we--a bunch of chocolatiers--can do with wine at this wine festival, Seersucker will be presenting a variety of treats at the Grand Tasting on Saturday as well. Our favored rosé gummy bears, on this occasion made with the fitting 30A Rosé, are sure to be a hit for wine-lovers and candy-lovers alike, and a few of our chocolate confections will ensure everyone gets their cocoa fix.
The Seeing Red Festival is always a fun and delicious event -- one that supports underprivileged children in the Northern Florida area -- and the chefs, artisans and winemakers there are second to none.
