Clearwater Uncorked 2018 Food and Wine Event
Updated: Nov 7, 2018
Last weekend was the PERFECT weather for Clearwater Uncorked 2018 at Clearwater Beach Florida! Once inside the tent that was posted up on the beach, there are multiple vendors set up inside ready to serve you unlimited samples! There were a lot of brands you would see at Publix plus local breweries. wineries, and restaurants. At check in you get a bag with a wine glass where they pour the different drinks in and a plate that holds your wine glass and your food samples (such a GREAT idea).
This was the break down for the schedule for the event this year:
12:00 p.m. Grand Tasting Village opens for VIPs and media ONLY
1:00 p.m. Grand Tasting Village opens for General Admission
1:00 p.m. VIP Spirits Pool Lounge opens *hosted by Wyndham Grand Clearwater
4:00 p.m. Grand Tasting Village closes
5:00 p.m. VIP Spirits Pool Lounge closes
The VIP passes are worth the extra hour entrance and if you like drinks!
Getting in an hour early was AMAZING. There was so much space and you really had time to talk to all the vendors. There was also a special area for VIP ticket holders that had a bunch more alcoholic vendors (vodka, whiskey, sake, etc..) that stayed open an hour longer than the event. If you a drinker, I think this is worth the ticket price for VIP alone since there was a good variety and these were UNLIMITED as well!
At each station they were giving out samples of food or drinks, various swag items, and coupons! The bag you get at check in will be very helpful because you will be getting tons of goodies to take home with you as well!
These were also UNLIMITED samples! I came back a couple of times for these chocolates and tarte things!
These are only SOME of the vendors that were there. There were way more but I wanted to put my camera and phone down to enjoy the event and my company!
Make sure you keep an eye out for the next Uncorked Clearwater!
