The Hilton Head Island Wine & Food Festival is more than a month away (March 4-9), but the winners have already been announced.
The International Wine Judging & Competition was held earlier this week at the Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa. Two dozen judges tasted more than 670 wines that were entered into the contest from all around the world. From that, they culled the best of the best.
