It’s all about the wine and our wines just got even better! Because it truly is all about the quality, diversity and scope of wines being offered and the relevance of the people bringing them to you, we are making the bold choice to pour fewer but higher quality wines.
More than 600 wines are available at the Grand Tasting and ticket price includes Savor South Walton Culinary Village, Tasting Seminars, Spirits Row, chef demos and Nashville Songwriters Showcase.
Sometimes something is so much fun you want to do it all over again. Welcome back to day two of the Grand Tastings where our wines are higher quality than ever before. For those of you just joining us, relax and enjoy ambling around Grand Boulevard’s large Town Center as you taste as many of the more than 600 bottles of wine as you like. Stroll over to the Savor South Walton Culinary Village and taste delicious food, selected to go with all varietals of wines. Check out the songwriters who came in from Nashville to play just for you.
Be one of only 100 judges given the privilege of tasting and judging original libations in competition for BEST CRAFT COCKTAIL BARTENDER at the event. The ticket includes entry one hour early for judging, a souvenir glass, and a judges’ lanyard.
