Crush Wine and Food Festival is hosted by Homegrown Huntsville and is currently celebrating its 6th year! In 2019, it was named one of the top 20 events by the Southeast Tourism Society.

This wine-filled weekend welcomes everyone from new winos to the most experienced connoisseurs. Plus, it’s only an hour and a half from downtown Birmingham.

With everything from high-end dinners prepared by acclaimed chefs to barefoot grape-stomping and food trucks, Crush Wine and Food festival truly has something for everyone.
