Cheers to August! Tour These Destin Tasting Rooms
We could say August is one of the best times of year in Destin, and it would be true, but even more true is there isnâ€™t a bad time of year to be on the Emerald Coast. What makes August so great, however, is the temperatures still sing of summertime, but the wide open beaches remind us kids have gone back to school.
Thatâ€™s why August is the perfect time for a couplesâ€™ escape or friendsâ€™ getaway to Destin. Call the best friends or in-laws and tell them youâ€™re going to Esencia in Destin. This five bedroom, six bathroom vacation home in Destin is ideal for an adults-only getaway. Esencia is outfitted with luxurious accents including stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a wet bar, and a private pool.
After you spend time at your private pool, or on the white sand beaches, cool off with a tour of the areaâ€™s craft brewery and winery.
At the foot of the Destin Bridge, McGuire’s Irish Pub emits a neon green glow, beckoning beach goers to come in for a frosty pint. McGuireâ€™s brews its own beer to complement their thick, hand-cut steaks and famous boxtys (deep fried clouds from heaven masquerading as fried mashed potatoes cakes). To quench your thirst, McGuireâ€™s brews an Old Fashioned Ale, Irish Pale Ale, Irish Red, Porter, Irish Stout, and even their own Root Beer.
If your palate is more inclined toward the grape than the hop, check out the Emerald Coast Wine Cellars in Miramar Beach. Located on Scenic Gulf Drive, the winery sources grapes from local Muscadine vineyards. The Carlos and Noble varieties are used to create fruity, aromatic wines, one of which, the Florida Carlos White Muscadine, was recognized by Martha Stewart Living Magazine. Other wines include a Noble Red, Sunset Red, Merlot, American Port, Sugar Sands White Wine, Chardonnay, Wildflower Honey Wine, Sherry Wine, Winter Berry Wine, Beach Berry Wine, Blackberry Wine, Blueberry Wine, Chocolate Port, and Vanilla Sherry Wine.
