Destin (February 21, 2013) – Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort and the Sandestin Wine Festival today announced they are joining forces with the internationally known South Beach Wine & Food Festival (SOBEWFF) this weekend, February 21-24.
Sandestin contributed a weekend getaway and other attractive extras to the SOBEWFF online auction to raise scholarship funds, and is also an exhibitor at the Wine Spectator’s Trade Day, tomorrow Friday February 22.
According to Sandestin Wine Festival event manager Lanier Motes, we are thrilled that two of the best wine festivals in the South can team up this year. “We are excited to support the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, and to connect these two very special organizations,” said Ms. Motes.
Slated for this April 18-21, the Sandestin Wine Festival is known as the "Kentucky Derby of Wine Festivals." It is a picture perfect event complete with white tents, the tasting of hundreds of wines, Gulf seafood and other culinary treats, and live music.
Now in its 27th year, the Sandestin Wine Festival is the most established and continuously running wine festival on the Coast. Guests are invited to "uncork some fun in the sun," and see why the Sandestin Wine Festival receives accolades from media around the country. This year’s event will include featured guest, and internationally known author and restaurateur Paula Deen.
Four days of unique events at Sandestin will include Grand Wine Tastings, VIP events, and the Coastal Living Magazine Cooking Stage. Many of the proceeds will be donated to The Fisher House, a worthwhile organization that provides free or low cost lodging to veterans and military families receiving treatment at military medical centers.
