If you don’t want to disembark the festival train after Charleston Wine + Food wraps up on Mar. 9, the Hilton Head Island Wine & Food Festival starts the following day.
Tickets are now on sale for the six-day festival, which boasts “the largest outdoor tented public wine tasting on the East Coast.”
Now in its 29th year, the festival is highly wine-centric. More than 850 wines are entered in the event’s International Wine Competition, which is conducted in late January, and New York Times wine critic Eric Asimov is planning to join the Grand Tasting on Mar. 14.
