The 2013 Hilton Head Island Wine & Food Festival, presented by The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa is gearing up for the 28th annual event which will be held March 4 – 9, 2013. The pre-Festival events taking place in January are “Uncork” the Festival on Saturday, January 26, 2013 from 6 - 8 p.m., (previously scheduled on Friday, January 25, 2013).
Uncork the Festival will be held at The Beach House by Holiday Inn on Hilton Head Island. It is fashioned after another popular wine special event founded by the Wall Street Journal, Tastings wine columnists called Open That Bottle Night. Most of us have a bottle of wine hidden away or specific vintage that we’re saving for a special occasion – but it never seems to come. Uncork is the perfect venue to share that bottle with some old friends, and make some new friends that know and enjoy wine.
The 2013 Uncork party will also include a lively Grape Stomping Competition, with an “I Love Lucy” look-alike contest. There is limited ticket availability for the Uncork event and attendees are asked to bring their own special bottle(s) of wine to taste and share with friends and other attendees. In addition, an attendee will receive a souvenir glass, select vineyard wine tasting and delectable hors d’oeuvres. Tickets for Uncork the Festival are $35 and are available online.
