Your Guide to a Memorable Time at the Annual 30A Wine Festival

Sip Wine

While there are several must-see events during the festival, wine aficionados flock to Alys Beach every year for the Grand Tasting! This aptly-named celebration features over 80 different wines, each with unique aromas and flavors. Take a stroll down Charles Street and try some of them! You can even pair your drink with delicious foods along the way.

Taste Foods

It may be a wine festival, but there are plenty of excellent options to satisfy your hunger. Local and regional chefs prepare five-star meals from Southern barbecue to fresh oysters. If you plan ahead, you might be able to reserve a seat for the initial wine dinner to get the festival started!

Have Fun

One activity that has become a favorite among visitors is the annual Rosé and Croquet tournament. The afternoon begins with a delicious brunch and, of course, Rosé. Afterward, sixteen teams go head to head in a friendly croquet tournament. Get your friends together and register early so you can put your skills to the test!

Learn Something New

The 30A Wine Festival is also an excellent opportunity to fine-tune your knowledge of wines. Each year, you have the option of attending a seminar where you can meet vintners and taste a variety of world-class wines. Discuss the nuances of flavors, discover the perfect food pairings, and more!

Get Your Tickets

Words can’t do this event justice. It’s a remarkable celebration every year, and we highly recommend checking it out.
