The first South Walton Beaches Food & Wine Festival takes place April 25-28 in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin, on South Walton's beaches in northwest Florida. More than 800 wines and a culinary village will comprise the event, proceeds from which benefit the Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation for children in need in northwest Florida. The run-up to the event began Feb. 1, with an international wine competition held at the Hilton Sandestin Beach, a founding partner of the event. As a founding partner, the hotel is offering two packages for the April event. The Grand Tasting Getaway packages features upgraded beach-view rooms and two tickets to the grand tasting April 27, with rates from $409 a night, using booking code "WF." The VIP Wine Lover's Weekend package includes beach-view rooms, two tickets to the exclusive Vibrant Rioja Reserva & Grand Reserva Tasting & Food Pairing event April 26, two upgraded VIP tickets to the grand tasting April 27, and two tickets to the after-party party April 27. Rates for this package start at $769 a night, using booking code "VP." Both packages require a minimum two-night stay. For more information about the deals, visit www.HiltonSandestinBeach.com.
