Enjoy this year's winefest as you taste your way through the grand event. Savor your favorite wines and libations from all over the globe paired with regional fare and sweet treats imagined by our culinary teams. As always, the world’s best artisanal cheese display will be piled high in our new, spacious floor plan. Spend your afternoon enjoying a collection of  passed hors d'oeuvres that range from luxurious caviar and indulgent sweets to more playful riffs that will be sure to satisfy the "late night munchies.". 

Embark on an acoustic journey with live music from Electric Avenue along with other surprise musicians, while enjoying interactive art that will encompass all the senses as you savor every moment of this grand affair.

 All of this year’s wines have been hand selected from premier product lines by Bern’s Fine Wines & Spirits’ General Manager, Chris Belk. To learn more about, or to purchase your favorite products, please reach out to our talented retail curators at [email protected].

Since 1997, Bern’s Winefest has been the main fundraising event for the Bern Laxer Memorial Scholarship. Through the James Beard Foundation selection process, funds are awarded to individuals from the state of Florida in one of three disciplines: Culinary Arts, Hospitality Management, or Viticulture. A portion of the proceeds raised through this event will go  directly to the Bern Laxer Memorial Scholarship Fund.
