In just a few weeks, Hilton Head Island will be sipping some of the best wines around. March 5-10 is the 27th Annual Hilton Head Island Wine and Food Festival and itâ€™s now one the largest tented wine events on the East Coast. For six days winos and foodies will invade the island to sample amazing Lowcountry dishes and outstanding wines.
The Festival kicks off March 5 with a â€śGreat Chefs of the South Wine Dinner.â€ť There will be a few of these throughout the week with time and location coming soon. Can you imagine anything better than talented local chefs pairing each course with a different glass of wine?!
If youâ€™re interested in expanding your wine knowledge, then Friday nightâ€™s Grand Tasting and Silent Auction is perfect for your palate. Proceeds from the silent auction benefits educational opportunities for students in the hospitality programs of study at the University South Carolina Beaufort and the Technical College of the Lowcountry through the John T. and Valerie Curry Educational scholarship fund.
Saturday, March 10 wraps up the fun with the big Wine and Food Festival from Noon to 3 p.m. The Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn will turn into a wine loverâ€™s dream with the opportunity to mingle with winemakers, sample hundreds of wines, listen to live music and snack on some amazing hors dâ€™oeuvres. Admission is $45 and includes access to all tastings and a souvenir wine glass.
Start planning your Hilton Head trip to Palmetto Dunes for this awesome event. Weâ€™d love to see Â you here to enjoy spring-like weather, fine wine and delicious food!Â
