One of America's "Top 10, can't-miss"fall wine festivals happens again in Seaside, Florida - that accolade was from Fodor's Travel, by the way - and plenty of wine lovers and fall travelers agree that this four-day festival is a special event in a special town.
The four-day festival of fun and wine features live music to accompany offerings from more than two dozen of the country's best winemakers. The perfect pairings appear with the most delicious foods prepared by our acclaimed local and regional chefs, and as many as 100 tents offering treats from our casually gourmet Seaside eateries.

UPDATE: as of this writing, Thursday's Dinner and the Friday VIP reserve tasting are sold out. Saturday and Sunday are open.
