The Wine Lovers Guide To Memphis
February 18 is National Drink Wine Day! While I’ll spare you any jokes about how some of us live every day like it’s National Drink Wine Day, I will share with you this handy guide to drinking wine in Memphis.

Wine Stores Specials and Tastings
Obviously, these are not all the wine discounts in town and not all the liquor stores. If I missed a really good one, leave me a comment and I’ll add it.
Many of our fine dining restaurants have fantastic wine lists, regular wine dinners, or offer wine pairings all the time. I’m not going to give you a huge list, but if you have a favorite, leave it in the comments! And restaurants: if you have an upcoming wine dinner, add it to the calendar. Memphis lovers are a thirsty bunch.
Did I leave something off? Share your additions in the comments.
Drink responsibly, please. With Uber and Lyft so easy to use (and cab numbers easy to remember – 577-7777) there’s really no excuse for driving if you’ve been imbibing.
