South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Festival

South Walton is the epicenter of the wine world every year during the last weekend of April for the ultimate wine celebration. Every wine enthusiast wants to be at the ultimate Northwest Florida beaches wine event where the world’s most preeminent winemakers and wine lovers gather to celebrate wine and food while benefiting children’s charities.  

The Northwest Florida Beaches Ultimate Wine Weekend consists of two separately ticketed events, including the 12th Annual Destin Charity Wine Auction, which raised $2.66 million in 2016 for 14 local children's charities.
