Sparkling Wine and Holiday Lights at Sandestin

Special Early Bird Pricing Available for Longest Running Wine Event in NW Florida


Miramar Beach, Fla. (Oct. 6, 2015) – Tickets are now on sale for the third annual Sparkling Wine and Holiday Lights event scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14 from 5-7pm inside The Village of Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. The event is the official prelude to the Sandestin Wine Festival which will celebrate its 30th edition next April. Event officials also announced special discounted pricing for the longest-running wine event in Northwest Florida with savings of more than 30 percent.


“We tend to think of our Sparkling Wine event as the grown up sneak peak of our holiday festivities inside the Village,” said special event manager Julie Stuckey. “This event will really get you into the holiday spirit as carolers roam the streets, lights accent the decorative Village store fronts, and we kick off the season with the first 12 Nights of Lights Show and Tree Lighting. We invite everyone to come to this very popular event, sip a little bubbly and sample great food pairings.”


Sparkling Wine and Holiday Lights highlights 30 different champagnes and sparkling wines, and pairs them with delicious appetizers at featured Village restaurants. Tickets are currently discounted for pre-sale purchases for $40 per person, and include a commemorative glass.


Event organizers also announced early bird ticket pricing for the premier wine event on the Emerald Coast, the 30th Annual Sandestin Wine Festival, set for April 14-17, 2016. For the first 150 ticket purchasers, the special price for the Grand Wine Tasting on Saturday, April 17 is only $65, reflecting a savings of more than 30 percent. The Friday evening tasting on April 16 is being offered for only $50 for the first 150 ticket purchasers, and guests can also purchase two day passes for $110. These advance discounted tickets are available at SandestinWineFestival.com. Historically, the festival’s tasting events have sold out, so people are encouraged to purchase tickets early.


“This exclusive sale is our way to show appreciation to the countless guests that continue to return to the Sandestin Wine Festival,” said Stuckey. “They have been loyal to us and have seen this event blossom into one of the finest wine events in Southeast. Our patrons are truly part of the tradition that will make our 30th Annual Sandestin Wine Festival so special.”
