Wine All You Want Along 30A

30A is known for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Boasting powder white sand, emerald-green waters, and breathtaking sunsets. It is also known for delicious seafood and a love affair with wine. Yes, our little beach towns put on quite the show when it comes to wine. Wine tastings, wine festivals, wine walkabouts, wine dinners, boutique wine shops, and the list goes on. If you’re a wine lover visiting 30A, here are a few of our favorite festivals and wine spots!

Third Thursday Wine Walkabout

Gulf Place Merchants host the Third Thursday Wine Walkabout, you guessed it, every third Thursday of the month. For $25, attendees can enjoy samplings of hand-selected wines, light appetizers, live music, and giveaways while visiting all the unique Gulf Place shops. From 5-7pm sip and shop for jewelry, artwork, clothing and more!

The Wine Festival at Baytowne Wharf

Welcome to a premier wine event that will blow you away. The Festival takes place April 15th-18th, 2021 at the Village of Baytowne Wharf in Miramar Beach. The main event, Grand Wine Tastings, showcase over 500 domestic and international wines over a two-day span. Talk to vineyard owners and winemakers as you sip on some of your favorite blends. Savory appetizer tents pop up throughout the festival allowing guests to pair delicious bite size morsels with their grape of choice. Add a tent featuring bubbly and desserts along with live entertainment…what can we say…Chef’s Kiss!

Adjacent to the Bottle Shop, this chic venue encourages you to discover a variety of wines paired with shareable plates, snacks, and charcuterie boards.

 Wine World WaterColor

Wine World is one of our favorite local wine spots. Locally owned, this is the perfect place to enjoy a gourmet meal in a sophisticated yet not stuffy setting with an extensive wine list. You’ll never get bored with the delicacies and cluster of wine options that Wine World WaterColor has to offer. So … wine lunch or wine dinner? Well, that’s up to you! Here on 30A, we prefer to do both.

On 30A you can have the beach and drink your wine too. Discover some of our favorite wine events and venues. Pop the top of your favorite bottle from local wine shops and enjoy a glass at sunset from a cozy 30A vacation rental. Toast to many more vacations on these beautiful beaches. Cheers from 30A!
