About the Festival

The 38th year of being THE BEST! The Sandestin Wine Festival is a pioneer among Emerald Coast festivals and has been drawing likeminded people looking to discover more about the culture and vibe of the Northwest Florida Gulf Coast with a fun filled, come-as-you are ambiance for over three decades. Whether you’re a wine aficionado or a grape novice looking to learn more, there’s something for everyone with 100’s of featured wines!

Topping area polls as a must-experience event, this beloved festival offers four full days of unique events including wine dinners with celebrity chefs, yoga, live music, interactive experiences, culinary tents, and of course wine tastings. Hosted in the Village of Baytowne Wharf and with a variety of resort accommodations from beach to bay available, immerse yourself in a weekend of friendship and discovery.

THIS EVENT IS RAIN OR SHINE! The Village of Baytowne Wharf is always open to the public. Even during special events, guests are welcome to visit shops and merchants. Nondrinking festival guests are welcome to attend the Grand Wine Tasting with their friends at no charge—they will not receive a wristband.
