Tennessee Wine Festivals
Want to get out and taste great wines in the great
state of Tennessee? Then look for a a Tennessee Wine Festival! These wine
events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Local Tennessee wineries set up booths and dispense their special wines
for you to taste and buy. It's a great way to sample a wide variety
of wines in one fun-filled place. Tennessee has several wonderful wine
and food festivals scheduled every year for locals and visitors
to enjoy. At most festivals you can expect to pay a nominal entrance
fee that then allows you to sample all the wines offered at the
event. Others sell tasting tickets that you can use at your tasting
discretion. Located in and around cities like Nashville, Paris, Knoxville
and Johnson City, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings
of TN wines. Many specialize in fine TN wines as well as national
and international wines. At every booth you can expect to find helpful
and friendly wine experts eager to answer your questions.
At festivals like Wine Over Water in Chattanooga
in September, Memphis In May International Festival, or A Toast
to Tennessee Wine Festival in Nashville Shores in May, you may find
wines from Tri-Star Vineyards & Winery, Tri-Star Vineyards &
Winery, Corey Ippolito Winery, Countryside Vineyards & Winery,
and many others at Tennessee wine festivals. In addition to wine,
these events can include excellent food to sample, prepared by local
restaurants and chefs. And often you can expect music too. After
all, nothing pairs better with wine than a little Jazz, or Blue
Grass music. Local musicians are out playing their best music to
accompany the wine tasting. Whether you're visiting Memphis, Collierville,
Chattanooga and Athens you can find a local wine, food and music
festival that will perfect your TN vacation. The most popular time
of year for these festivals are the Fall and Summer months, but
they are also scheduled during holiday months as well. Imagine sipping
some great wines while watching the annual Christmas Tree lighting
ceremony! So although, you may not have time to visit all of Tennessee's
great wineries, you can taste their wines at these great events.
So get out and enjoy! As always, Wine Bar Wineries is here to help
