Wine South 2006

Mark your calendars. The biggest wine event in the South is a little over a month away. On September, 15th, Wine South 2006 kicks off for the whole weekend, through September 17th. With over 600 wines & food from Atlanta's best restaurants & caterers, any food & wine lover will certainly be in heaven.

On Friday the 15th, the event kicks off with the Reserve Tasting Event and Silent Auction for Angel Flight. The wineries pouring at this Reserve Tasting Event are there on an "invitaion only" basis, so I am betting it will be the creme de la creme. Food will also be prepared by Atlanta's hottest chefs to match the wine being served.

Saturday the 16th is the Grand Festival Tasting. With over 600 wines being offered, I am sure there will be something for everyone. At events this large it is best to go with an agenda, like maybe just tasting reds, or only whites or even narrowing it down to only trying certain varietals. Making a dent in the huge selection will be a Herculean task...even if you spit.

Wrapping up the festival on Sunday the 17th, will be the Trade Only Tasting, where the members of the wine trade get to taste new wine vintages and portfolios of the top boutique distributors and importers in the state of Georgia plus schmooze with industry insiders.

This is not an event to be missed. Even if you are not a die-hard wine drinker or just someone who wants to learn more about wine (remember you learn by tasting!) Wine South 2006 will be a great event to attend.
