Grand Tasting, Brunch & Charity Auction Brunch
Saturday begins at 11:00 am beneath the elegant Winefest tent on Sarasota Bay on the grounds of the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and features appetizer portions of signature dishes from some of the best area restaurants.
A grand tasting of wines from more than 40 wineries complement foods available at food stations. Rub elbows with host vintners and knowledgeable winery representatives as they pour their best vintages and most sought-after-wines.
Commencing at 1:00 pm, the afternoon continues at our charity auction. Bid on wines, lavish dinners, adventure travel, jewelry and more!
