Saturday brought clear skies and warm temperatures to the Charleston water front as yachts Southern Comfort and Eurilla hosted one of more than a dozen events all part of Charleston's 5th Annual Wine and Food Festival.
Nothing like 50 guests and red wine on a yacht to get the captain's attention.
Top chefs from the Daniel Island Club, Duvall and New Dream Catering complimented wines offered by MacMurray, Lolonis and Bodega Sur de los Andes wineries, as guests were invited to tour yachts, Southern Comfort, Eurilla and Jennifer Ann.
Phillip Lolonis was a hit with the girls.
As with most charity events success is often in the luck of the draw. Southern Comfort drew Kate MacMurray and New Dream Catering while Eurilla hosted Duvall Catering and Phillip Lolonis.
