2020 Tybee Wine Festival Events
Wine & Dine at The Deck,
Wednesday, April 29, 6-9 pm
An exclusive multi-course wine-tasting dinner that pairs the perfect wines with each course, from appetizer through dessert at one of Tybee’s newest and most scenic restaurants, The Deck Beach Bar and Kitchen. Nestled within the sand dunes, The Deck will provide the picture-perfect setting for a wine-tasting reception outdoors on the oceanfront deck. And as the sun begins to set, you’ll venture inside where the chef has scrumptious menu prepared with the freshest local ingredients. Our sommelier will guide you through the courses as he explains the dynamics of each culinary and wine selection and why they work together to make the most exquisite match. We’ll also have a silent auction in which guests can bid on several very special items, from original local artwork to Cuban cigars and rare wines to Gold Savannah Film Festival passes. It’s a wonderfully intimate evening of fine wining and dining at this fabulously popular Tybee restaurant.
Pickin’ & Shuckin’
With Beer & Bubbles,
Friday, May 1, 6-8 pm
A toast to island style in a sunset evening with roasted oysters and pig pickin’ on the lawn in front of the beautifully restored Tybee Post Theater. Whether your style is standing at the oyster tables and shuckin the night away, or camping out under the big tent with a cocktail and a plate piled high with the best BBQ in the Coastal Empire, this event has something for everyone who loves good eatin’ and drinkin’ and fun company! We’ll have a mountain of oysters from Ambos Seafood, a roasting pig on the spit under the watchful eye of grillmaster Gerald Schantz, and pulled pork with all the fixin’s from Mike Hosti’s Tybee Market under a big tent for this delightfully casual and fun event. And everyone takes home a souvenir oyster knife and commemorative 2020 Tybee Wine Festival wine glass.
The Grand Wine Tasting,
Saturday, May 2, 3-6 pmThe Grand Wine Tasting is the Festival’s signature event featuring more than 100 international wines and samplings from the menus of our favorite Tybee restaurants. This beautiful spring afternoon event, set this year on the spacious grounds of the centrally located Tybee Island Memorial Park, also features a live band playing on the Festival Stage, a spectacular silent auction, and, as always, a commemorative 2020 Tybee Wine Festival glass to take home. So, bring your beach chair or blanket, relax on the lawn and enjoy this early May afternoon of good food, fine wine and lots of fun. We’ll also offer our popular VIP tent again this year, which features special hors d’oeuvres and additional fine wines, not to mention tables in the shade!
