Seeing Red Wine Festival®, the highly anticipated SEASIDE® wine experience is set to return for its 30th anniversary! Slated for November 10th-13th, 2022, this year’s event will feature winemakers, chefs, live music, and more with the picture-perfect New Urbanist town as its backdrop.
The Seeing Red Wine Festival® has been recognized as one of the “Top 10 Can’t-Miss Fall Wine Festivals” by Fodor’s Travel. Since its inception in 1991, Seeing Red has established a reputation for showcasing premier wine and culinary offerings, and for hosting world-class vintners and chefs, all in the simple and elegant style that is SEASIDE®’s signature. After a pause during the pandemic, the 2022 event marks three decades since the festival’s debut.
“We are thrilled to welcome this event back to SEASIDE® and to share such an incredible experience not only with those who have been longtime attendees but with first-timers as well,” said Micah Davis, President of Seaside Community Development Corporation. “This year’s event is a long time coming and poised to be our best yet.”
As the name suggests, Seeing Red proudly highlights a thoughtfully curated selection of red wines from around the world as well as an extensive array of white wines, rosés, and blends paired with bites from SEASIDE®’s popular local restaurants.
The 2022 itinerary for the four-day festival includes a vintner’s dinner Thursday, Al Fresco Wine Tasting Friday, The Grand Tasting in Central Square Saturday, and the Celebration of Bubbles on Sunday.
“The caliber of Seeing Red combined with the ambiance and history of SEASIDE® is simply unparalleled,” said Director of Events Tate Forbes. “I know so many have been anticipating this event’s return and we’re all so excited for locals and guests to experience what we have planned for this year.”
