Seeing Red Wine Festival 2014
As the air turns crisp & cool, Seaside hosts it’s 24th annual Seeing Red Wine Festival
There is still time to book your stay with one of our Lodging Partners and enjoy what Fodor’s Tavel named as a top 10 “Can’t-Miss Fall Wine Festival”. Coming on November 6-9, 2014 is 4 days of Festival Fun. The Seeing Red Wine Festival in partnership with the Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation entices wine enthusiasts from around the globe to stroll through different areas of Seaside and sample over 250 kinds of wines, a variety of craft beers and spirits, while enjoying music, southern hospitality and cool autumn air at the beach.
“The¬†Seeing¬†Red¬†Wine Festival is one of the most highly anticipated events in our area,” said Lori Leath Smith, Seaside Community Development Corp. public relations and marketing director. “Seaside’s featured events on Friday and Saturday¬†allow¬†both the wine novice and the fine wine connoisseur to sample specialty wines while discussing them with the very people who devote their lives to the cultivation of the grapes. And event proceeds benefit Northwest Florida children in need.”
The event extends to also having vintner’s dinners, wine tastings, and a brunch with the wine makers. For the first time this year they will showcase craft beers and spirits in the new Beer Garden from local and visiting breweries. Several surrounding restaurants have special dinner choices pairing with the ideal reds. This is a great reason to stay and visit the Destin, FL area and travel along the Emerald Coast only a short scenic drive to the festival. ¬†
