34th Annual Sandestin Wine Festival | Grand Tasting

Sandestin Wine Festival

One of the most famous local wine festivals in Destin, FL is the Sandestin Wine Festival!

The main events, know as their 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, a festival favorite, their 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.

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.

The Village of Baytowne Wharf is always open to the public. Even during special events, guests are welcome to visit the shops and merchants. Non-drinking festival guests are welcome to attend the Grand Wine Tasting with their friends at no charge–they will not receive a wristband or tasting glass for wine or food. You must be at least 21 years of age to taste wines.
