5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9 at The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Spa

Showcasing a masterful collection of premium wines, the Grand Reserve Tasting is not only an annual sell out, but also one of our most popular presentations. Each of our wineries offer their exclusive brands, many of which have a retail value exceeding $50. This is the patron’s opportunity to have the finest tasting experience, talk one on one with winemakers and their representatives.

Presented on the beautiful grounds of the Westin Savannah “harbor lawn”, with the the Savannah River and historic Savannah as your back drop, there is little wonder that the Grand Reserve Tasting is one of the “hottest” festival tickets year over year. Delicious small plate tastings prepared by the talented Westin culinary team..
