25th Annual Seeing Red Wine Festival, Nov. 5-8

Seeing Red Wine Festival

Aged like a good Bordeaux, the Seeing Red Wine Festival is gearing up to celebrate its 25th anniversary, Nov. 5-8, 2015. Held in Seaside, Florida as well as throughout the beaches of South Walton, the Seeing Red Wine Festival is four-day celebration of wine that benefits the Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation and children in need in Northwest Florida. 
Underscoring the event’s popularity and focus on premier wines, the Seeing Red Wine Festival Grand Tasting is already sold out. But no need to fret, there are still tickets available for some of the weekend’s exceptional wine events, including Vintner’s Dinner, Al Fresco Reserve Tasting and the Fall Wine Walkabout. 
The festivities kick off Thursday, Nov. 5, at 7 p.m. with the Vintner’s Dinner at the famed Bud & Alley’s restaurant. Executive Chef David Bishop will create a special menu in collaboration with the featured vintner. Admission is $125.

On Friday, Nov. 6, the Al Fresco Reserve Tasting, from 6 to 8 p.m., is an elegant evening showcasing an incredible selection of library wines, featuring vintages that have been cellared to be uncorked at just the right time. Celebrated local chef, Jim Shirley, will prepare a delicious array of hors d’oeuvres that pair perfectly with the featured wines. The evening is complemented by live jazz music under a clear-topped tent and twinkling lights on Seaside’s Lyceum Lawn. Admission is $200.

Tickets are also still available for Sunday, Nov. 8, events, including a Celebration of Bubbles, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Great Southern Café in Seaside, followed by the Fall Wine Walkabout & Charity Auction, from 2 – 5 p.m. at the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa in Miramar Beach. 
The Celebration of Bubbles features sparkling wines, including Champagne, Cava, and Prosecco, among others, which will be complemented by delectable brunch items. Live music and new friends make for a fun festival morning on the coast. Admission is $60.
From 2-5 p.m., the Fall Walkabout & Charity Auction will feature delectable array of wines complemented by live music and food stations from more of South Walton’s top local restaurants. The event is enhanced by the gorgeous beachside setting on the Hilton’s Sunset Deck, overlooking the shimmering waters of the Gulf of Mexico and includes a silent auction, featuring wines, vacation packages, and artwork. Admission is $60. Visit Seeingredwinefestival.com for more information and to purchase tickets.
