Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 1 PM – 4 PM: It’s all about the wine! It truly is all about the quality, diversity and scope of wines being offered and the skills and relevance of the people bringing them to you.

More than 800 wines are available at the Grand Tasting as well as the newly redesigned Savor South Walton Culinary Village, Tasting Seminars, Rosé All Day Garden, Spirits Row, and Nashville Songwriters Showcase.


2019 Wine & Food Seminars Include:

1:30 - 2:15 pm: Bill Samuels Jr. - Maker's Mark. Maker's Mark began with one family's quest to create a bourbon they enjoyed drinking and sharing with friends. That’s hardly revolutionary today, in 1953 it changed an industry. Bill Samuels, Jr. turned his parents’ little company into an icon and helped create a more flavorful version of their bourbon. Along the way, he rewrote the rules of marketing and set Kentucky’s bourbon industry on a path to growth and success. Enjoy the journey and stories of this visionary Whisky Hall of Famer.

2:45 - 3:30 pm: Michael Landis - Institut du Fromage. Enjoy tantalizing pairings of award-winning cheeses, meats and more to perfectly pair with wine.
