Sixth Annual Gourmet & Grapes – The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island, South Carolina
Saturday’s Wine Odyssey Gala was a lively and festive affair. With incredibly talented and well-known chefs from around the Southeast preparing small bites and wine tastings offered from wineries around the world, guests also had the opportunity to bid on items at the silent auction as well as participate in the live auction. Some of the live auction items were truly one of a kind opportunities featuring private dinners prepared by several chefs, a Five Star Experience at The Sanctuary, and an ultimate wine getaway in France. The dinner and auction were followed by a champagne party, dessert, and music while bubbles flowed and dancing continued into the late hours of the evening.
The Farewell Brunch on Sunday concluded the weekend as chefs from Kiawah Resort created a menu showcasing local cuisine and fresh seafood from the coast of South Carolina. With views of the Atlantic Ocean from the dining room at Jasmine Porch at The Sanctuary, it was the perfect end to a spectacular weekend.
If you are contemplating attending a food and wine event next year, consider the Seventh Annual Gourmet & Grapes Weekend at The Sanctuary. Kiawah Island is a very special place to spend a few days and with plans for next year’s event already underway, you can be sure the staff at Kiawah, volunteers from Hollings Cancer Center, and their guest chefs and wineries will once again serve up an extraordinary weekend.
