Santé South Wine Festival Set for April 8, Benefits Alzheimer's Mississippi
Tickets are now on sale for the 2018 Santé South Wine Festival, set to take place on April 8, 2018, at Renaissance at Colony Park.
Since 2006, Santé South has grown into the largest wine and culinary extravaganza in the state of Mississippi. A signature for the capital city of Jackson, it has generated more than $650,000 in proceeds for Alzheimer’s Mississippi. It is truly Mississippi’s top luxury wine and food experience! Epicureans and connoisseurs in the greater Southeast revel in the fresh and flavorful cuisine. Only small production and boutique wineries are invited to Santé South.
Boutique vintners from across the globe travel to Mississippi to present their annual new release wines. Santé South affords a rare opportunity for the wine enthusiast to speak directly with the winemaker and features more than 120 exceptional wines and fine food samplings from more than 20 top Mississippi restaurants. World-class wine offerings reveal the highest quality available from all corners of the winemaking-world stemming from a passion for wine and the desire to share it with others.
For the 13th consecutive year, Alzheimer’s Mississippi is the recipient of the proceeds from this event.
Along with the event is the Run Now Wine Later 5K race. The Fleet Feet Sports 5K is the only race in the area where finishers can enjoy a wine and cheese after social to celebrate finishing the race and kick off a full weekend of festivities including the 13th Annual Santé South Festival, the Ridgeland Fine Arts Festival, and the One Behind the Other Tandem Bike Rally.
