Oh, how we love springtime along the Emerald Coast. Spectacular weather, colorful sunsets and festivals of all kinds. The growing number of Northwest Florida wine festivals gives wine loving travelers another excuse to plan a trip the beach.

The South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Festival will take place April 25 - 28, in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin. Located near many of premier Destin vacation rentals , including Hidden Dunes Beach & Tennis Resort, the SoWal wine festival is not only fun but benefits a great cause.

Featuring more than 800 wines from around the world and a new culinary village with palate pleasing foods that pair beautifully with wine, the South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Festival benefits the Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation, which helps children in need in Northwest Florida.

As an added bonus, renowned winemaker Peter Mondavi Jr., co-proprietor of Charles Krug-Peter Mondavi Family Winery, will be attending the festival and pouring some of his favorite varietals. Joining Mr. Mondavi is an amazing roster of wine participants, including Hélène Garcin- Lévêque, owner of Chateau Clos L Église, Pomerol; Charles J. Chuck Wagner, owner of Caymus Vineyards, and Joe Davis, winemaker of Arcadian Winery.

Throughout the festival, a who's who of Nashville songwriters will play and tell stories about the hit songs they wrote for the biggest stars in the music business.

Join us for this incredible weekend of culinary delights; wine tastings, pairings and workshops and live music. Destin and South Walton Vacation Rentals are still available and a 10 percent discount is available on any stay of four-nights or more from April 13 until May 15, 2013.
