Frequently Asked Questions

What is Bern's Winefest?

Bern’s Winefest is Central Florida’s premier food and wine tasting experience. It was created to allow our guests a decadent week of events with the area’s most talented culinary teams complemented by the best wines from around the world. Winefest is a philanthropic event supported through the Laxer Family Foundation and our family of brands. The Laxer Family Foundation uses the proceeds raised from Winefest to send funds to the James Beard Foundation for the Laxer Memorial Scholarship Fund. Created in the spirit of Bern Laxer, these scholarships aim to assist students who are interested in a career in culinary, hospitality management, or viticulture. We have proudly gifted 28 scholarships since our events began; thanks to our generous sponsors, donors, and attendees of Winefest.

When is the 2025 Bern's Winefest?

The 28th Annual Bern's Winefest will be held on Monday, April 21st - Sunday, April 27th.

When will tickets go on sale for the 2025 Winefest?

Date to be determined.
Tickets will be sold online only and will NOT be available at Bern's Fine Wines & Spirits.

All proceeds benefit the Laxer Family Foundation and the Bern Laxer Memorial Scholarship, in collaboration with the James Beard Foundation. Please be sure to set up your Eventbrite account in advance, as events have limited capacity and sell out quickly.
