There is never a shortage of what to do on Amelia Island! On October 13th, the inaugural Amelia Island Wine Festival will be held at the waterfront in downtown Fernandina Beach. This event will feature Florida-only wines and the vintners who make them. Visitors will be able to enjoy tastings with the award-winning vintners and discuss their wines and wineries, as well as purchase bottles or cases. Currently, 15 wineries are scheduled to attend, with more than 60 different wines for guests to sample, as well as a selection of craft vendors featuring wine and kitchen accessories and gourmet food vendors. The event will also offer an educational booth regarding the Florida wine industry. Guests will receive an Amelia Island Wine Festival wineglass for their tasting. Residence Inn Amelia Island is located just a short drive to the downtown Fernandina Beach area and we also offer a complimentary shuttle anywhere on the island, so we could transport you easily to and from the Wine Festival. If you are looking for a fun weekend getaway, Amelia Island is just the place to be, and the Wine Festival should be something fun and interesting for everyone!
