Saturday, April 14th at The South area wine lovers will again be treated to hundreds of fine wines from the world over. This is the eighth year the event has been held here after spending its first two years in Hattiesburg.  Sante South, benefitting the Alzheimer’s Association of Mississippi, is truly one of the best wine festivals in America.  What makes it unique is that you can meet and visit with many vintners and winemakers who have come to Jackson to show their wines.  Our little wine festival gets more vintners / winemakers and has much better wine selections than either Sandestin’s or New Orleans’ events.

Sante South will also feature a silent auction replete with rare wines, exclusive tastings, wine country packages, and more!  In addition, most of the state’s top restaurants will be offering selected fare for enjoying with the wines.  Tickets are $80 for the Grand Tasting and $125 for the VIP Tasting and can be purchased by visiting by calling 601-987-0020.

This year’s participants can be found by visiting  And as usual, Colony Wine Market will have for sale all the wines shown at Sante South.
