Savor Cannon Beach Wine & Culinary Festival
Four days of wine tasting events, wine dinners and a wine walk featuring dozens of Northwest wineries are planned for the Savor Cannon Beach Wine and Culinary Festival, March 6-9, 2014 in Cannon Beach, Oregon. This community-wide festival features food, wine and arts events all around town including several wine tasting events showcasing Northwest wines and focusing on specific themes over the four days of the festival.
The event kicks off with the Thursday Night Throwdown, where participants taste twelve select wines (two of each varietal) to determine their favorites. Other events include the Battle of the Blends featuring four red and four white wine blends from the Northwest. Saturday of the festival is the Savor Cannon Beach Wine Walk featuring approximately 40 Northwest wineries pouring tastings at Cannon Beach art galleries, restaurants and retail shops, all within easy waking distance in this compact beach community.

Local shops and galleries also host their own events over the course of the weekend. Festival events are intimate and limited in size with only about 100 tickets available for tasting events and 500 tickets for the Saturday wine walk.
