The Franklin Wine Festival “Grand Tasting” features more than 300 wines, sampling from 30 restaurants, a silent auction, and live entertainment on multiple stages. The event is celebrating its 14th anniversary this year having provided more than $1.9 million for Big Brothers Big Sisters in its legacy.  Tickets for the October 12 Grand Tasting which will include the crowning of the new King and Queen of the Vines are available now at

The funds raised by the Franklin Wine Festival events will be used to serve more children with a mentor across Middle Tennessee through Big Brothers Big Sisters programs. Children with a mentor make better, safer choices in life which in turn reduces crime, improves graduation rates, and lays the groundwork for an overall economic benefit to the Middle Tennessee community.
