This lively event will welcome wineries from across Tennessee to Spring Hill for a day of wine, and in a new twist, vintage cars, also with vintage and artisan shopping, food trucks and live music from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28.
Working with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture and the Tennessee Wine Growers Association, Vines & Vintage is one of only seven state-sanctioned wine festivals in Tennessee. Vines & Vintage is the final wine festival for the 2017 season.
Because the festival is state-sanctioned, participating wineries will sell their wines exactly as they do at their own vineyards. Festival goers will be able to sample wine and buy it by the bottle or the case while touring the Tennessee winery booths. You will also be able to enjoy a bottle of wine with your lunch or while listening to live music.
In addition to award-winning Tennessee wines and a car show, Rippavilla invited some of its favorite vintage vendors and artisans back for this event. These talented vendors will be onsite selling one-of-a-kind items just in time to start your Christmas shopping.
Vines & Vintage committee members hope festival attendees will purchase a bottle of wine, enjoy lunch from one of the food vendors while listening to a live performance by local folk and blues artist Damien Boggs. Damien’s performance is from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m.
