Unique wine tastings and culinary experiences will be offered at the Savor Cannon Beach Wine & Culinary Festival, March 12-15. Attendees can taste wines from approximately 40 Northwest wineries at the downtown wine walk, attend a wine dinner or participate in a series of wine tasting events over the four days of festival events at Savor Cannon Beach.
The festival is designed to offer intimate experience with most events limited to less than 150 participants. The largest event, the Saturday wine walk, is limited to several hundred wine tasters who can visit approximately 40 Northwest wineries pouring tastings at Cannon Beach art galleries, restaurants and retail shops, all within easy walking distance in this compact beach community. A $50 ticket buys a souvenir glass and tastings are the free at all locations.
Two festival events pair award-winning Northwest wines with chef-made creations.
The festival kicks off on Thursday with Best of the Northwest Wines & Small Plates, an evening featuring a tasting of eight award-winning wines and chef-prepared small bites to pair with them. The Battle of the Bites event on Sunday afternoon features gold medal winning wines from the 2020 SavorNW Wine Awards and hors d'oeuvres offered by local chefs and restaurants.
Individual tickets to festival events are $25-$50 each. A daily pass for both events on Friday is available for $60 and a pass for Saturday’s two events is available for $65. A full festival pass, good for admission to all six festival events is $225. Advance purchase is recommended, as events are limited in size and have sold out in past years.
Additionally, several Cannon Beach hotels and resorts are offering lodging packages that include complimentary tickets to Saturday’s wine walk, the biggest event of the festival. For a complete schedule of events, to purchase tickets or for a list of lodging offers, visit savorcannonbeach.com.
