The Grand Tasting, held in Cerulean Park, is the festival's main event and is designed to highlight harvest season at the beach. Large seafood, BBQ and provisional stations manned by celebrity chefs and supplemented by the best restaurants along the Gulf Coast are combined with tasting stations featuring over 150 wines from around the world. Craft beer and spirit tents and an exclusive VIP activation 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, November 3 at 6:00 p.m. and will run through Sunday, November 5 at noon. The silent auction will be hosted on the 501 Auctions mobile bidding platform. 501 Auctions attendants will be on site throughout the festival for registration, however advance registration is recommended and you can get your tickets HERE!

The opportunity to purchase wine and other merchandise on-site will also be available throughout the festival.
