VINTNER DINNERS
The 2014 Franklin Wine Festival presented by Cool Springs Wines & Spirits and supported by Nissan to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters is celebrating ten years of unparalleled food and wine in Middle Tennessee.

There are two Vintner’s Dinners this year where attendees have an opportunity to taste amazing wines carefully selected to showcase at this moment, paired by culinary treats where chefs were given absolute creative license to pair their favorite menu items. Each course offers unique insight about the wines from the Vintner's representative, and we usually get to corral the chef during the finale for kudos and individual questions you might have.

Reservations for either dinner are $85 per person, and available by calling
Sarah Beatty with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee, (615) 522-5659.

Due to limited seating, reservations are not available online for the Vintner’s Dinners.
