As I seem to do each year, I recently wrote about my favorite wine festival. It’s called Winesong, and it’s held in a park overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the stunningly beautiful Mendocino Coast.
I can write about Winesong with “authority” because I’ve attended so many editions through the years. So you can trust me when I say, “Go—you won’t be disappointed.”
In recent weeks, I’ve been hearing from some wine friends about another not-to-miss festival. It’s called Music to Your Mouth, and it’s held at The Inn at Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, South Carolina.
South Carolina? For a wine festival? I’ll answer that question with a question: Why not?
This year, Music to Your Mouth is scheduled for November 19-24, and here’s how the event is described on its website:
“Once again we will gather the best and the brightest chefs for a singular lip-smacking experience, right in the spectacular South Carolina Lowcountry. This is the place to flap your jaws with the culinary rock stars that just wowed your taste buds.
“Along with the special events like a traditional ‘Kiss the Pig’ oyster roast and classes taught by top chefs, wash it all down with world-class wines, spirits, craft beers and locally-roasted coffees while listening to great blues, jazz and southern music drift over the May River.”
Let’s see… There’s great food… great wine… great music… and then when the evening is completed, you can just walk back to your room.
I’m thinking my friends are right: This is one event I need to put on my “to go” list. It sounds as if it would make the wait between “Winesongs” a little more bearable.
