Sipping wine by the sea is one of life's great pleasures, especially paired with dishes from award-winning chefs. Tybee Island Wine Festival brings the world's finest wines to Savannah's favorite beach for five days this April, with a focus on coastal cuisine and some of the tastiest bottles on the planet. Here's what to expect:
A Celebration of Earth & Vine (April 22nd)
On the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, this special dinner in Tybee Wedding Chapel is truly "earth to table," as four famous chefs personally present dishes to diners, along with expertly paired wines.
The Art of Pairing (April 23rd)
Five inspired courses and the wines that elevate them take the spotlight for this dinner at Tybee Island Social Club. A knowledgeable sommelier escorts diners through the nuances of each, explaining how the flavors of the dish and glass marry into something magical.
An Evening of Oysters & Wine (April 24th)
Casually elegant, oysters are served six ways, with live music and wine to wash them down, as the sun sets into the sea at Marlin Monroe's Surfside Grill.
The Grand Wine Tasting (April 25th)
Tybee Light Station is host to the festival's main attraction, an oceanfront afternoon of live music, local restaurant samples, a silent auction, and over 100 world wines.
Sunday Champagne Brunch (April 26th)
This Southern-style feast at The Crab Shack is a delicious end to a perfect week, complete with a generous selection of champagnes for tasting.
