It's a great time to love wine in South Walton. Not only is there the Sandestin Wine Festival this weekend, but next weekend there is another big foodie event, the South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Fest happening April 25 through 28. Their logo says it all; wine, food, and beautiful beaches. I couldn't ask for a more perfect weekend!
There will be a selection of over 800 wines to taste, delicious food, and seminars on how to pair the two together. Also, three of Florida's most famed celebrity chefs, Norman Van Aken, Giorgio Rapicavoli and Brian Siebenschuh, will be there live for cooking demonstrations during the Grand Tastings on Saturday and Sunday.
The event is a major fundraiser for Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation, which benefits children in need in Northwest Florida.
