W3 Elegantly Blends Conservation & Cuisine


By Alexa Orndoff, JIA Director of Marketing and Communications 

Where can you find endless beverage tastings and an exquisite culinary experience from some of the South’s top chefs, alongside the opportunity to experience Jekyll Island’s native wildlife up close? At the 2019 Whiskey, Wine & Wildlife – W3.

Now in its fourth year, attendees will enjoy samplings of whiskey, wine and spirits, coupled with coastal cuisine, cooking demos and more. But more importantly, attendees get a first-hand look at the continued conservation efforts taking place across the more than a thousand acres of preserved wilderness.

For four event-packed days, W3 attendees can get up-close-and-personal with some of the island’s birds, turtles and other reptilian residents, including snakes and alligators. Research and education experts from the Jekyll Island Authority and Georgia Sea Turtle Center will lead fun, interactive programs including an eco-walk to see the Island’s very own Bald Eagle nest.

Some of the events that attendees can sip and savor their way through include:

Friday, February 8: “Whiskey Inspired,” - Westin Jekyll Island
Saturday, February 9: “Whiskey, Wine & Wildlife,” - Jekyll Island Beach Village
Sunday, February 10: “W3 Sunday Brunch,” - Westin Jekyll Island

Having raised more than $20,000 last year, the auctions benefit Jekyll Island Foundation programs which assist with the continued support of conservation, preservation and education on the island.
