The 26th Annual Seaside Seeing Red Wine Festival is just around the corner and we've made a list of all the things you won't want to miss for your wine weekend of festival fun. Soak up the charm of historic Seaside while you sniff, swirl, and sip your way through our selection of over 250 wines and taste test all the delectable gulf-to-table, fresh local food from several of South Walton's famed restaurants.

Plan your stay-cation in Seaside for a whole weekend of wine-sipping fun in the sun. Be sure to book your Seaside rentals through Sunday to experience all that the Seeing Red Wine Festival has to offer. 

Ticket-holders will have a chance to meet & greet wine celebrities William Mercer of Mercer Wine and Dave Guffy of the Hess Collection. Chocolate mastermind, Scott Witherow, of Olive & Sinclair will also be present with a special Southern-style Salted Caramel Bourbon Ball treat.

Be among the first to quench your thirst with the wine of your dreams in our breezy VIP tent and lounge. The VIP Saturday ticket includes early entry at noon to the VIP tent on Lyceum Lawn. In addition to an exclusive selection of wine and spirits at the VIP bar, VIPs will also receive extra festival merchandise and can enjoy live music by Chris Alvarado, small bites by 45 Central Wine Bar, and some good old college football.


The Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation's Sunday event has been moved to Seaside's Lyceum Lawn this year and will immediately follow the Celebration of Bubbles at Great Southern. Enjoy our famous "hangover station" with bloody marys and mimosas along with live music by Kyle LaMonica, a great wine selection, catered appetizers, and the opportunity to bid on fantastic auction items such as trips, dinners, and rare wines. Explore the shops in Seaside or make your way to the pétanque courts as you bid on the go with our new mobile bidding feature.

This weekend is truly all about giving back. The proceeds from the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday events all give back to the Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation and it's 14 local children's charities, and a portion of the Sunday tickets will benefit the Seaside Neighborhood School. For more information on the benefiting organizations, visit our website.

Keep track of your wine experiences by taking notes in your handy tasting guide throughout the weekend of festival fun. If you like what you've tried, be sure to stop by the retail tent.

All your favorite wine will be available for purchase at the Retail Tent from Friday-Sunday so you can take your favorites home with you. Be sure to check out the Merchandise Tent for some Seaside Style. You can also help support DCWAF's 15 beneficiary charities when you purchase your new favorite, super cute and comfy wine-drinking t-shirts at the festival or in advance online. Grab some for you and your friends, and feel free to wear these all weekend long.
