The Wharf Uncorked Food + Wine Festival is held at The Wharf in Orange Beach each September.

It is a fun three-day event that combines the excitement of delicious food and tantalizing wines, live entertainment, a pinch of Southern flair and a dash of Gulf Coast hospitality.

This event will raise funds for Make-A-Wish® Alabama—an organization devoted to granting wishes to Alabama children with life-threatening medical conditions. The 2016 Wharf Uncorked Event raised $15,251 for Make-A-Wish® Alabama through generous donations, live and silent auctions, and the Chef Table Raffle.

The Wharf Uncorked featured demos from renowned chefs, cuisine and wine tasting tents, live and silent auctions, and wine auctions and sales.

There will be 150+ wine labels on hand, and guests will be able to sample and purchase fine wines from vineyards ranging from local to domestic and imported.

Chefs will be on hand for cooking demonstrations, food tastings, cookbook signings and cooking competitions.

When not sipping on wine or enjoying all the fun associated with the wine event, make time to play at the Wharf. And bring the whole family.

There are concerts at the 10,000-seat outdoor amphitheater held throughout the spring and summer, miniature golf, a brand new zip line course, the largest Ferris wheel east of the Mississippi River, a movie theater, plenty of dining and boutique-style shopping, and more.

Bring a few friends and stay right in the middle of the fun at The Wharf condos. Or, to stay nearby, reserve a two-bedroom beach condo in Orange Beach.
