See more than red at the Seeing Red Wine Festival in Seaside, November 9-12 2017
I’m all about anything wine related, but add in a festival in Seaside? Heaven at the beach! The Seeing Red Wine Festival is now in its 27th year, recognized as one of the Top 10 Can’t-Miss Fall Wine Festivals by Fodor’s, which means it’s amazing. People from around the world flock to our little slice of the Emerald Coast in order to partake in this fun event. Seriously, it is wine, food and the beach-just go!
What is a wine festival?
The Seeing Red Wine Festival offers you a chance to sample wines from around the world while tasting delicious and unique food pairings offered by local chefs, so both foodies and wine aficionados will savor the experience. You don’t have to be an experienced wine connoisseur to appreciate the experience, there is something for everyone. As an added bonus, proceeds will benefit The Seaside Institute and the Seaside Neighborhood School.
