Friday, October 25: 6 PM - 8 PM
Al Fresco Reserve Tasting
The Al Fresco Reserve Tasting, held in WaterColor's Marina Park, offers festival-goers a selection of library wines that feature rare vintages not easily accessible to the average consumer. An array of perfectly paired hors d’oeuvres and live music all set to a breathtaking Gulf coast sunset will make for a memorable and elegant evening.
Saturday, October 26: 1 PM- 4 PM
The Grand Tasting, held in WaterColor's Cerulean Park, is the festival's main event and is designed to highlight harvest season at the beach. Large seafood, barbecue, and provisional stations manned by celebrity chefs and supplemented by the best restaurants along the Gulf Coast are combined with tasting stations featuring over 250 wines from around the world. Craft beer and spirit tents will also be available.
It wouldn’t be a DCWAF event without the opportunity to bid high and bid often. A silent auction featuring a variety of rare wines, staycations, and unique experiences will open Friday, October 25 at 9am and will run through Sunday, October 27 at noon.
*VIP guests will receive access to an exclusive VIP tent featuring elevated wines, lounge area broadcasting college football, and additional catering as well as the ability to skip the lines and enter the festival through a private VIP entrance.
