Amelia Island Wine Festival
Wine Tickets are now on sale for the 2nd annual Amelia Island Wine Festival hosted by the Amelia Farmers Market.
This year’s “Taste the Southern Hemisphere” will showcase award-winning wines from the premier growing regions of Argentina, Chile, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa on October 12, 2013.
Among the moss-draped oaks and reflective lagoon at the Shops of the Omni Amelia Island Plantation, visitors will be able to stroll along the Wine Walk and sample dozens of wines from over 20 wineries, learn about the wines and wineries from wine industry representatives and do it all without a passport or jetlag! All wines will be stocked at our Wine Tent where you can purchase a bottle or a case to prolong the pleasure long after you return home.
This year, visitors who purchase a Wine Ticket will also be able to savor food tastings from several local popular restaurants in our Restaurant Court.
The Wine Walk is open to everyone to shop for artisan-crafted treasures from table art ware to functional pottery and art pieces, hand-painted stemware, glass art, one-of-a-kind bottle toppers and wine bags, wooden ice buckets and bar accessories and more.
Visitors can also wander down the Wine Walk to the award-winning Amelia Farmers Market and mingle with local farmers and entrepreneurs as you roam through a dizzying selection of farm-direct fruits and vegetables harvested just before Market day including organic and specialty foods.
