The Annual St Augustine Spanish Wine Festival celebrates Spanish food and wine from Friday, September 8th (The city of St. Augustine’s Birthday), to Sunday, September 10, 2017.
The popular St Augustine Festival offers Spanish food and wine for visitors and locals to enjoy at a variety of events over three days, showcasing the many aspects of Spanish influence on the culinary scene in St. Augustine!
This Year’s St Augustine Spanish Wine Festival Features All-New Kickoff Location
This year, the St Augustine Spanish Wine Festival will be held at a new location, the St. Augustine Shipyard. This exciting new venue overlooking the San Sebastian River in downtown St. Augustine is a multipurpose facility, with shops, meeting facilities, a marina, and the upcoming and highly anticipated children’s museum. The Shipyard and Wells Fargo are sponsoring this year’s St Augustine Spanish Wine Festival.
From fireworks and gourmet dinners to wine tastings and a hilarious wine battle that is fast becoming a St. Augustine tradition, the event is three days of celebrating Spanish food, wine, and culture in the nation’s oldest city.
The Cava Reception and Dinner launches the Festival weekend, featuring a four-course dinner paired with Spanish wine, on Friday, September 8, from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. A fireworks display will follow the dinner. Every year Michael Lugo and his team at Michael’s Tasting Room try to outdo previous years’ menus at the Cava Reception and Dinner. If you love authentic Spanish cuisine prepared by one of America’s great chefs, you won’t want to miss Friday night, September 8!
Michael’s Tasting Room is our neighboring restaurant at the Agustin and also our official tour partner for this year’s Annual St Augustine Bed and Breakfast Holiday Tour.
The Cochinillo Asado is from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 9. This is a picnic with Spanish-style roast pig served with Spanish wine and beer. The Batalla de Vino, an outrageous wine fight in the Spanish tradition of the “batalla” where participants dressed in white battle one another with wine-filled squirt guns, will be held during this event, from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m
The Festival concludes with the Grand Tasting on Sunday, September 10, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. More than 100 Spanish wine are available to sample, accompanied by Spanish-inspired hors d’oeuvres.
