We put the fun in fundamentals! Our enjoyable, informative topics in a laid-back atmosphere make our sampling seminars a festival favorite! Seminars are offered on the hour and last approximately 20 minutes. Sit back, relax, and enjoy while entertaining your tastebuds. All seminars feature sips of Tennessee wines and a nibble or two of something tasty. It just doesn't get any better than this!

Seating is limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis. All educational events include wine and food sampling and are free of charge. Attendees must vacate the seating area after each event in order to allow staff to clean up and set up the next workshop.
