The 2014 Seeing Red Wine Festival is around the corner and is one of the most anticipated of Destin events for the year. The annual event was named by Fodor’s Travel as a Top 10 “Can’t-Miss Fall Wine Festival” and with good reason. Wine enthusiasts will gather in Seaside November 6th through 9th to sample wines from around the world and enjoy live music for four days of activities.

The kickoff will begin Thursday at 7pm at Bud & Alley’s Restaurant with a special Vintner’s Dinner. Seaside’s new wine label, the Seaside Wine Project, will be featured as well as special guest Erik Miller of Kokomo Vineyards. Reservations will be required for the evening.

On Friday, the Al Fresco Reserve Tasting will take place from 6-8pm at Seaside’s Lyceum Lawn. Exclusive wines paired with hors d’oeuvres will be enjoyed with live music playing for the evening. Lori Leath Smith, Director of Public Relations and Marketing at Seaside Community Development Corporation, says, “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.”

The Saturday Grand Tasting event will be from 1-4pm with more international wines, live entertainment, and meals from several well-known restaurants of Seaside. This year, craft beers will be available from local breweries including Grayton Beer Company and Idyll Hounds Brewing Company.

Sunday will be the Grand Finale event of the weekend with a Celebration of Bubbles at the Great Southern Café. At 11am, sparkling wines will be featured from around the world with live music to conclude the weekend. Seeing Red Wine Festival has partnered with the Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation with proceeds benefitting Northwest Florida children in need. Many have made arrangements to stay and enjoy the full weekend by reserving Destin vacation rentals in the vicinity.
