Seeing Red Wine Fest

When: November 9-12, 2023

Where: Seaside, Florida

What: Celebrating its 31st year, Seeing Red Wine Fest offers a fun-filled weekend for wine connoisseurs and novices alike. This annual wine experience celebrates the makers behind the bottle and will feature grand and reserve tastings, live music, local cuisines, a themed brunch, a vintners dinner, and more! 

Fun fact: Before Seaside, Florida was as well known as it is today, the town’s merchants came together to brainstorm an event that would bring people to the area. The event they came up with was a wine festival. Bud & Alley’s co-founder Scott Witcoski crafted a large, predominantly red poster for the first year and that’s how the name ‘Seeing Red’ came to be!
