The Savannah Food and Wine Festival is the culinary event many wait all year for. The annual event hosts a wide variety of events highlighting Savannah’s rich culinary community and history. Celebrity chefs, culinary professionals, winemakers, sommeliers, cooking classes, live music, and more have helped the festival to become a beloved tradition.
Highlights include the Grand Reserve Tasting, where you can sample wineries exclusive brands as well as speak with the winemakers. The Secret Savannah Speakeasy is a fun-filled evening harking back to the prohibition heydays with small-plate tastings, hand-crafted cocktails and craft brews, and a wide array of entertainment.
The River Street Stroll takes place overlooking the Savannah River. Stroll along Savannah’s picturesque riverfront with the chance to sample hundreds of beverages: hand-crafted cocktails, wines, spirits, and beers. Of course, the biggest draw may be The Taste of Savannah. This signature festival event will see offerings from Savannah’s best restaurants plus hundreds of wines, spirits, craft beers, and more.
