From the Latin phrase "Sic Parvis Magna," or "greatness from small beginnings," is where the South Walton Beaches Wine and Food Festival draws its breath. Thirty years ago, the owner of a small wine store in Sandestin, Chan Cox founded the Sandestin Wine Festival on the sidewalk outside his shop. Since then, it has become one of the most highly regarded festivals in the Southeast, and as of 2013 has expanded to become the South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Festival. We'll let history bear out the festival's greatness, suffice it to say, 2015 looks to be another promising year for the festival and its partners.

Coinciding with the festival, one hotel in Sandestin, Florida is offering deep discounts of up to 15% off stays in April, through April 30th at Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard.
