Saturday, November 6 will bring the return of the festival’s signature Grand Tasting after a year reprieve due to the pandemic. Guests will once again be welcomed to WaterColor’s Cerulean Park for an afternoon of epicurean excellence featuring tasting stations from wineries around the world, as well as seafood, barbecue, and provisional stations manned by celebrity chefs from the best restaurants along the Gulf Coast and throughout the Southeast. The Fox Brothers return to the Grand Tasting with the assistance of Atlanta-based Chef Craig Richards of Lyla Lila for a special collaboration unique to Harvest Wine & Food Festival.

“When the festival approached us about participating and how we could create a special Atlanta collaboration for this year’s party, our minds went straight to Craig Richards of Lyla Lila,” Jonathan Fox said. “One of our favorite chefs in Atlanta, we are excited to take our level of barbecue and Craig’s mastering of Italian cuisine, to create an exciting and creative menu. We cannot wait to see you at the beach and share this experience with you.”

This year’s Grand Tasting will also feature a beer garden and a VIP tent complete with elevated wine and culinary components and a lounge showcasing the weekend’s top college football games.
