Mississippi Wine Festivals
Want to get out and taste great wines in the great
state of Mississippi? Then look for a a Mississippi Wine Festival! These wine
events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Local Mississippi wineries set up booths and dispense their special wines
for you to taste and buy. It's a great way to sample a wide variety
of wines in one fun-filled place. Mississippi has several wonderful wine
and food festivals scheduled every year for locals and visitors
to enjoy. At most festivals you can expect to pay a nominal entrance
fee that then allows you to sample all the wines offered at the
event. Others sell tasting tickets that you can use at your tasting
discretion. Located in and around cities like Oxford, Grenada, Tupelo
and Corinth, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings
of MS wines. Many specialize in fine MS wines as well as national
and international wines. At every booth you can expect to find helpful
and friendly wine experts eager to answer your questions.
At festivals like Sante' South Wine Festival in
Jackson in April, Natchez Food & Wine Festival in August, or
Southern Breeze Wine & Culinary Festival in Biloxi in March,
you may find wines from Old South Winery, Boggy Creek Vineyard,
and Gulf Coast Winery, at Mississippi wine festivals. In addition
to wine, these events can include excellent food to sample, prepared
by local restaurants and chefs. And often you can expect music too.
After all, nothing pairs better with wine than a little Jazz, or
Blue Grass music. Local musicians are out playing their best music
to accompany the wine tasting. Whether you're visiting Jackson,
McComb, Hattiesburg and Biloxi you can find a local wine, food and
music festival that will perfect your MS vacation. The most popular
time of year for these festivals are the Fall and Summer months,
but they are also scheduled during holiday months as well. Imagine
sipping some great wines while watching the annual Christmas Tree
lighting ceremony! So although, you may not have time to visit all
of Mississippi's great wineries,
you can taste their wines at these great events. So get out and
enjoy! As always, Wine Bar Wineries is here to help you find exciting
wine, food and music festivals near you.
