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 13th Annual Destin Charity Wine Auction, which raised $2.7 million in 2017 for 15 local children's charities. 

The South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Festival net proceeds also benefit DCWAF. This year’s annual South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Festival will be held April 26 - April 29, 2018 throughout the Town Center of Grand Boulevard at Sandestin. The festival features a stunning showcase of the best wines the world has to offer. Celebrity wine producers and chefs present fine wine and food pairings from the world’s most famous appellations. The Savor South Walton Culinary Village offers a sumptuous array of foods to taste, wines to pair, as well as wine and food tasting seminars and live entertainment.
