Sip on rosé all day at SEASIDE® Seeing Red Wine Festival! Recognized as one of the Top 10 Can’t-Miss Fall Wine Festivals by Fodor’s Travel, this delicious festival in Seaside, Florida, brings together connoisseurs and novices alike to enjoy outstanding wine tastings and pairings.
Starting out as a single-day wine fair, Seeing Red Wine Festival has grown from a small community event to an impressive festival that attracts visitors from across the nation. Formerly a stand-alone event, the Grand Tasting is now the main attraction at the larger, multi-day Seeing Red Wine Festival. Today, the Grand Tasting features hundreds of wineries and local restaurants and eateries, resulting in the festival itself often selling out.
Over the course of four days, ticket holders can choose from an array of wine-tasting opportunities aside from the main event, such as dinner and dancing under the stars, or even a boozy brunch with live music. Whether you enjoy reds, whites or rosés, this festival surely has the perfect wine for you.
The festival consists of:
Thursday – Bud & Alley’s Vintner Dinner
Friday – Al Fresco Reserve Wine Tasting – Ruskin Place
An elegant evening showcasing a carefully curated selection of reserve wines, featuring exclusive vintages. Winemakers and other vintner VIPs will be pouring these amazing wines. An array of hors d’oeuvres prepared by Chef Jim Shirley’s culinary team will pair perfectly with the featured wines. Enjoy live music under the stars on a beautiful Fall evening in Ruskin Place.
Saturday – Grand Tasting – Downtown Seaside & Ruskin Place
Seaside’s Central Square will come alive with over 130 quality wines for tasting curated by Seaside’s own restaurants and eateries, hand-selected food offerings chosen by Seaside’s popular and well-known local chefs, as well as live music, and the opportunity to purchase wines on site.
Sunday – Celebration of Bubbles Brunch – Ruskin Place
Sunday wraps up the weekend with a Celebration of Bubbles, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. in Ruskin Place. Sparkling wine enthusiasts will explore Champagne, Cava, Prosecco and more, alongside a perfectly paired menu from Chef Jim Shirley.
