The 2013 Savannah Food and Wine Festival

Savannah Food and Wine FestivalGrab your napkin and let your belt out a notch or two: the week-long, 2013 Savannah Food and Wine Festival is nearly upon us!

Savannah is not so much the example as the rule when it comes to Southern hospitality and, as we all know, a decent percentage of hospitality relies upon good food and drink.

Come and experience Savannah’s premier culinary event! The 12th Annual Taste of Savannah will be held on Thursday, November 8th, 2012 at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center from 7 – 10pm.
