If you love food, drink, music and unforgettable experiences, then this week-long celebration in November is just what you’ve been looking for! Although there are some new things in the line-up this year, we could never forget these five signature events that make the Savannah Food & Wine Festival what it is today.

Grand Reserve Tasting – Thursday, November 12, 2015 at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa
Taste some of the finest wines in the world all in your own backyard. This Connoisseur & Collector’s Main Event will include an epicurean gourmet experience and a collectible piece of fine stemware for the tasting as a souvenir. It may have taken three years but this event has proven to be extremely popular due to the quality of wines and is quickly approaching sell out!
River Street Stroll – Friday, November 13, 2015 at Rousakis Plaza, River Street
Sip, Savor and Shop! We’re bringing the festival to the coolest part of town. Taste hundreds of wines, spirits and beers from around the world with your souvenir GoVino glass, while experiencing Savannah’s historic and iconic River Street.
Taste of Savannah – Saturday, November 14, 2015 at The Georgia State Railroad Museum
Our most popular event, for good reason, is an explosion of everything food, wine and Savannah all in one place. Even though the Taste of Savannah is at a new location, this classic event is not to miss. You can expect delicious food from Savannah restaurant favorites, hundreds of wines, spirits and beers, the Bartenders Challenge and unlimited access to a wide variety of cooking demonstrations, learning experiences and new venues. Attendees will also receive a souvenir crystal wine glass and five free food tokens. Current venues and activities can be found here.
Jazz & Bubbles Brunch – Sunday, November 15, 2015 at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa
End the week with our festival finale brunch at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa. Relax to the smooth sounds of the Equinox Orchestra, while celebrating with Champagne, wines and specialty cocktails. It’s the perfect way to say “goodbye” to the 2015 Savannah Food & Wine Festival and “hello” to next year’s festival!
Tickets to these “Tried and True” events and more are available here.
The Savannah Food & Wine Festival takes place throughout Savannah from November 9 – 15, 2015 with local and celebrity chefs, winemakers, connoisseur dinners and one-of-a-kind culinary, spirits and wine experiences.
