Our Fourth Annual UNwineD event that took place at Aaron Bessant Park on March 22-23 featured amazing craft beer and wine tastings, creative cocktails and delectable culinary creations from some of the South's top leading chefs and distributors, that led to an exceptional turnout of attendees to the two day festival. The weekend began on Friday, March 22 with an elegant garden party presented by Southern Living, complete with bites from Chef Kevin Gillespie of Red Beard Restaurants and drinks by Mixologist Mercedes O'Brien. Saturday featured the Grand Afternoon Tasting, where guests sipped and savored craft beer, spirits and wine from around the world paired with delicious bites full of local flavor. Upon arrival to the Grand Tasting, guests were given a voting card to pick their favorites in each category to choose our Top Tastemakers of UNwineD and the votes are in!
