If you have been following us recently then you know we have been enjoying our fair share of wine. But this weekend, Ryan is heading out of town for a work trip for a few weeks, and I am heading to Clearwater Beach Uncorked! This is my first year attending and I am so pumped for a beautiful day of food and WINE on the beach!
Clearwater Beach Uncorked has been dubbed the hippest, most exciting two-day food, wine, and craft beer festival on Florida’s West Coast. This year is the seventh annual event and I am looking forward to the unique backdrop of beautiful white sands that Clearwater has to offer with the fun of a foodie exploration.
Event tickets will set you back $75 per person, per day for general admission and $100 per person, per day for VIP access, but know that you get all the food and drinks and tons of other great incentives included. Everyone receives a limited-edition wine glass, custom tote bag and can enjoy the Grand Tasting Village with unlimited tastings from 1 to 4 p.m. Now, the VIP ticket, adds an extra one-hour early admission to the Grand Tasting Village and exclusive access to the Spirits Pool Lounge at the Wyndham Grand pool deck from 1 to 5 p.m. to sample exciting and intriguing crafted libations. And you know we LOVE Wyndham Grand!
Another great aspect of this event is the support of local education programs. Each year, a portion of proceeds from Clearwater Beach Uncorked has assisted the community through various hospitality programs and has supported the University of South Florida’s Sarasota Manatee School of Hospitality and Tourism for the past four years. These funds go towards developing academic programs, scholarships, research grants and campus infrastructure. So this support of local educational programs is right up my alley!
