DESTIN CHAMBER: 30A Songwriters VIP Wine & Food Event

Destin Chamber issued the following announcement on Jan. 10.

The Pointe on 30A, a stunning new boutique luxury vacation rental property situated on the east end 30A, will officially kick off the 2018 30A Songwriters Festival, as the host of the VIP wine and food tasting event on Friday, Jan. 12 and Saturday Jan. 13 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

This will be the first year for the VIP wine and food tasting as part of the 30A Songwriters Festival. Each evening, the event will begin with a oysters and champagne on the Rooftop Sanctuary, which overlooks Rosemary Beach and the Gulf of Mexico. Guests will taste dishes specially prepared to compliment and reflect the wines curated by fine wine import specialist Adam Caperton. On Friday, Adam will take guests on a trip through one of France's most esteemed wine regions, Loire Valley, from crisp and clean sparkling wines to the Sancerre appellation to Loire's food-friendly Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc-based reds. Saturday will showcase Southern Italy; guests will experience the sun-drenched wines of Calabria and Apulia, the refreshing coastal wines of Sardinia and will finish off the night with world class wines from Sicily.

“We are so honored to host this first-time event,” said Heather Smolarek, general manager of The Pointe. “When you combine a beautiful property on Scenic Highway 30A with great food, wine and music — you have the best of everything a coastal lifestyle offers, don’t you?”

The 30A Songwriters Festival is a four-day music festival during Martin Luther King weekend, Jan. 12-15, 2018. In venues ranging from intimate listening rooms to spacious outdoor amphitheaters, amid the scenic backdrop of the 30A area, the festival features more than 175 songwriters and over 200 performances. Confirmed headliners include Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Ann Wilson of Heart, the Zombies, Patty Griffin, the North Mississippi Allstars and Lee Ann Womack, Emily Saliers of Indigo Girls with her Murmuration Nation Band and Shawn Mullins.

Since opening in March, The Pointe has become one of the hottest new addresses on Highway 30A. Located in Inlet Beach at the east end of 30A, The Pointe is perfectly situated directly across the street from the high-end shops and dining at 30Avenue, and within walking distance to still more dining, shopping and attractions within the beautiful beach towns of Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach.

The 68 upscale one-, two- and three-bedroom accommodations at The Pointe are appointed with stainless steel appliances and contemporary designer furnishings. This boutique gem offers an over-sized resort-style pool at the center of the property, with select units also boasting personal and private splash pools. In addition to fully furnished kitchens, The Pointe also features an on-site restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, complimentary beach chairs, and complimentary bikes (in season).
