Uncork and Unwine At Vintage901's 8th Annual Spring Festival

Can you believe it's Spring already? Well, you’re just in time because the fun’s about to start.

Vintage901 is hosting their annual Wine, Food, and Music Festival. What a trio? Click here to grab your ticket.

The Wine, Food, and Music Festival. Let’s talk about it!

Vintage901 Flyer

For the eighth year in a row, they’ve planned a weekend of events to bring connectivity to the community through: wine, food, and music.. of course. This year, they’re starting the weekend off on Saturday, April 20th, from 6-9 p.m., for The Grand Tasting event.

But, what is The Grand Tasting event?

Get your taste buds ready... you may be about to find yourself a new favorite wine. There’s a multitude of wine vendors in one space and here, you can let your taste buds dance. While you are trying different types of wine, you also have the opportunity to get to know the wine experts and wine itself...a little better.

Plus, we’re going to class! Sounds fun, right?

Well, not the schoolroom we’re used to. This class helps us get a better understanding of how to pair our food with our wine. I’ve heard that pairing the right wine with the right food elevates your entire palette. And the chefs will take us through this course, step by step.

Now Sunday, April 21st, will be a bit more chill, but a whole lot of “sparkle.” Welcome to their Sparkling Brunch!

From noon until 2 p.m. there will be more food and wine. This year, Sommelier Laurie Forster, is the host and we are expected to have “a fun, educational twist.”

And, according to Vintage901, the proceeds from their spring festival will be used to support students in need of careers! So what a great way for us to pour back into our community and get to try new things?

Can’t wait to see you there.

About the Author

Hi, Hii. I’m Carmen Monèt and I am a free-lance journalist from Memphis, TN. I’ve always had a love for storytelling and actually I used to say that I was providing a voice for the “voiceless;” but as I’ve grown as a writer I’m learning that we’ve always had a voice, we just didn’t have the platform to express ourselves.

So I listen a lot, but I also get to connect with people so much. My daughter Cabella is the best part of my entire life, and she has pushed me to actually follow my dreams of becoming a real writer. I hope that people are able to really feel the passion and vulnerability that I infuse in my writing, and be teleported into the story.

Build your perfect Memphis meal:

If I could build my version of the “perfect” meal in Memphis, we’d have to take a drive around the city and make a few stops. I’m a certified taco lover, and currently TacosNGanas has been my go-to for some good shrimp tacos. Once we leave there, let's slide over to Slider Inn, and order the “Mix & Match,” granted we’re doing more matching than mixing, because I only ever order their fried Buffalo Chicken sliders with no pickles, ofcourse. Now our next stop has some of the best food I’ve ever tasted, but what stood out the most to me was their creamy mac & cheese, I’m a southern girl and I love me some mac & cheese. Last but not least, we’ve got to walk just a couple of doors down to Babalu for some fresh guacamole. I can  assure you that there is absolutely nothing cohesive about this picnic, but none of the flavors will disappoint you. 

Why do you love Memphis:

Memphis is just such a cultural powerhouse. This city that I love has given me so many beautiful memories. Each day I get to experience it from a different view, but in that, I still get to experience the underlying feeling of community. The people here are some of the best people in the world. There are local artists whose eyes will light up when they see you supporting them and singing along with them. There are locally-owned and operated restaurants that care about you actually being satisfied with your meal and their service. One of the things I love and think about the most is how Memphis has been able to “bounce-back” to life and actually living, after so many doors were closed forever due to COVID; but, I can’t say that I’m surprised, our perseverance is unwaivering.
