The Sandestin Wine Festival, one of the top wine festivals in the country, recently announced the addition of two major players at the upcoming April 20-23 event.
Coastal Living signed on as a presenting sponsor for the ninth consecutive year. It is the ultimate magazine and resource for coastal décor, food, lifestyle trends and travel.
Meiomi will be a featured wine sponsor for the first time. Meiomi will be pouring its three California coastal wines — Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and its brand new Rosé — in the Meiomi Home on April 21 and 22. The Meiomi Home made its debut in 2016, touring the top food and wine festivals in the U.S. to bring the fresh, approachable taste and style of Meiomi directly to consumers. More than 30,000 wine lovers have tasted Meiomi in the Meiomi Home, a 20-foot by 20-foot structure crafted to resemble a cozy California bungalow. Tasters will feel at home as they sip Meiomi and discover the elegant, coastal elements of the Meiomi Home. Additional information about each of the wines, vineyard sourcing, and winemaker, Melissa Stackhouse, can be found at meiomi.com.
“We’re thrilled to bring the Meiomi Home to Sandestin this year, and to welcome visitors into our California wine bungalow,” said Clayton Seeto, Meiomi’s director of event marketing. “Our team will share delicious flavors from coastal California and capture the memory with our Lightbox, which will be a great reminder of their festival experience and time spent with Meiomi.”
Now in its 31st year, the Sandestin Wine Festival is the most established and continuously running wine festival on the coast. Known as the “Kentucky Derby of Wine Festivals,” this picture perfect event is complete with the tasting of hundreds of wines, culinary treats, wine dinners, seminars, live music and more. Guests are invited to “uncork some fun in the sun” April 20-23 and see why the Sandestin Wine Festival receives accolades from media around the country.
Proceeds will be donated to the Fisher House, which provides free or low cost lodging to veterans and military families receiving treatment at military medical centers, and Sandestin Foundation for Kids, whose goal is to make a meaningful and positive difference in children's lives.
Chief sponsors of the Sandestin Wine Festival include Coastal Living, Meiomi, ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, Good Grit, Visit South Walton, Publix, 30A, GPL Landscaping, EC Magazine, 850 Magazine, Destin - Fort Walton Beach Airport and SoWal.
