Enhancing this lineup will be vintners, certified sommeliers and enlightening wine enthusiasts. Leaving no stone unturned creating this tasteful outdoor festival recipe, we have added a special key ingredient to completely excite your soul – homegrown Memphis Music. While festival goers sip and sample from the best, they will also enjoy a buffet of blues, jazz and rock ‘n roll. We call it icing on the cake!
