Featuring a champagne 5K run, a VIP experience, as well as a chance to meet the chefs, the Galveston Island Wine Festival curates a wine tasting experience which is so much more than you expect! A blind tasting event is a unique opportunity for tasters to rely only on their palates to determine a wine’s attributes. Guests can swirl, sniff, and sip a variety of white and red wines while each bottle is covered.  The top-scoring wines (three reds and three whites) advance to the Chaine des Rôtisseurs Dinner in which one of the finalists is named the Grand Champion of the festival.
