Founding Sponsor:

Wine World is a locally owned retailer of fine wine, craft beer, and premium spirits in Northwest Florida. Wine World was founded in Destin, FL by Chan Cox in the year 2000. His founding principle was to provide unparalleled selection and customer service delivered at highly competitive pricing. That founding principle remains strong 19 years later, with 5 retail stores and 7 restaurants serving locals & visitors along Florida's Gulf Coast.

Community involvement and goodwill are our core values. Wine World hosts & sponsors dozens of events throughout each year, helping to raise millions for charity.

Chan Cox also founded and continues to sponsor the South Walton Beaches Food & Wine Festival, and Destin Charity Wine Auction.

Founding Partner & Host:


Reminiscent of a luxurious grand seaside manner of yesteryear, Henderson Beach Resort, a Salamander Beach & Spa Resort, seamlessly blends modern conveniences with the nostalgia of days gone by — all set against a backdrop of the authentic bustling beach town of Destin located on the Northwest Florida Gulf Coast.
