VERO BEACH, Florida – On Friday, members from the Sebastian Daily team attended the Vero Vino’s 1st Annual Wine & Food Festival at the Heritage Center held by the Unity Center of Vero Beach.

The tickets included wine, beer, and food pairing. Rodney Strong Wine, Antinori Wine & Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte, Charles Krug & Napa Valley Wine kept the wine flowing. Proceeds went to The Boys & Girls Club of Indian River County and Unity Center of Vero Beach.

Wild Thyme Catering served delicious herb marinated lamb chops with blackberry lime coulis, smokey steak skewers, tomato caprese skewers, ahi poke nachos, tropical shrimp skewers, and lobster salad stuffed cucumber cups. Our favorite was the tasty herb marinated lamb chops with blackberry lime coulis.

Sweet Creations of Vero Beach took care of everyone’s sweet tooth with varies yummy treats and The Walking Tree Brewery kept the beer drinker happy with their newest craft beer.

Here are a few photos from the event:
