Vintage 901 Food & Wine Festival 2018

Posted by Holly Whitfield | February 19th 2018 1035 1

Celebrate spring at the second annual Vintage 901 food and wine weekend in Memphis this year.

Vintage 901 has three days of awesome foodie and wine events, some of the best local chefs, and hundreds of wines from around the world. I’m giving away a pair of tickets to the Grand Tasting event. Keep reading for a quick rundown of events and info, plus easy instructions on how to enter. (giveaway ended)

Here’s the rundown:

Friday: The Grand Tasting at Crosstown Concourse

Not to sell this too hard, but I’m surprised that tickets are only $65 for this event. You’ll get food samples from a half-dozen local restaurants and shops and access to 70 – yes seventy – wine tastings prepared by the Grand Sommelier Laurie Foster.

They’ll have complimentary valet (but with all that wine you may want to grab a Lyft/Uber),  local vendors, and music from the super fun Nick Black and you’ll get to hang out in Crosstown.

Saturday: Perfect Pairings Dinner at Memphis College of Art

Chef Kelly English prepares a four-course meal and Sommelier Laurie Foster offers wine pairings with each. Tickets are $250 in advance, they’ll have complimentary valet parking, and take-home cookies from The Pink Bakery.

Sunday: Sparkling Brunch at Shelby Farms Park

Chef Jimmy Gentry of Paradox Catering prepares a brunch and Laurie Foster has even more wine pairings to close out the weekend’s festivities. They’ll have live music from Copacetic 901 and tickets are $85 in advance.

If you can’t decide which event to attend, Vintage 901 food and wine fetival in Memphis also has handy dandy three-day passes for $375. Read more and get your tickets here. Last year they sold out of the three-day passes.

The Best Part

The best part of Vintage 901’s festival is that they are again using the event to raise money for The Women’s Foundation For A Greater Memphis. The Women’s Foundation’s main goal is Vision 20/20, a mission to reduce poverty in 38126 through grants, education, support programs and more. I encourage you to check out TWF ‘s website and Facebook page.

Supporting Memphians and tackling poverty is something we can all toast to.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    I am an Uber driver and I promote your site at least 20 times a week to new comers. Out of towners, and locals. So you might want 2 consider telling folks 2 take an Uber instead of or at least included with Lyft. Also. If you gave me business cards it would help me promote you. What I tell folks is: “She knows everything, from family friendly 2 freaky…from 5 star restaurants 2 opening of a snow cone shop.”
