Miramar Beach, Fla. (August 17, 2020) – Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation (DCWAF), one of the nation’s premier fundraising organizations, is pleased to announce a newly structured schedule of events for Harvest Wine & Food Festival. In light of COVID-19, DCWAF is moving away from the festival’s Grand Tasting format that has traditionally welcomed large crowds to WaterColor’s Cerulean Park for three days of wine and culinary celebrations. Instead, DCWAF is unveiling six upscale, limited-capacity events happening in various locations throughout South Walton.

With multi-course dinners featuring world-class wineries, a rum dinner featuring Birmingham’s Campesino Rum, and a cocktail-inspired interactive brunch prepared by Birmingham celebrity chef Kristen Hall of The Essential and Bandit Patisserie, the fourth installment of Harvest Wine & Food Festival is positioned for success during a time when gathering together has never been more challenging, yet meaningful.

Tickets for Harvest Wine & Food Festival go on sale September 1 at HarvestWineandFood.com. DCWAF strongly recommends that guests planning to attend purchase their tickets early due to the limited capacity of each event.

The 2020 Harvest Wine & Food Festival Schedule of Events is as follows:

Wine Dinner featuring Dakota Shy
Wine Dinner featuring Revana Estate sponsored by Emerald Coast Magazine | Cuvee 30a
