Sample your favorites this April during one of the many wine and food affairs held throughout Florida.

"Taste Of" events and wine festivals dominate Florida's food calendar this April, so treat your taste buds to a wide variety of vintages and delectable restaurant samples.

"Tasting events boast a wide assortment of wines and signature dishes for satisfying varied palates," says Joan Steinbacher, author of "Food Fest! Your Complete Guide to Florida's Food Festivals." "I enjoy sampling bits of everything and trying dishes I've never had before. Of course, you can latch onto your favorites. It's your choice--and that's the point at Taste Of events!"

But if you're set on what you like, there's other fabulous foods celebrated during April's festivals -- seafood, chili, sausage, strawberries, sweet corn, and more. For those with a sweet tooth, try the Great American Pie Festival or the Sugar Festival.

As an added bonus, many event proceeds benefit non-profit organizations, so you can eat and drink for a good cause! And there's plenty of diverse entertainment to keep kids young and old amused.
