Vintage901 is back August 19, 2017 for its Lowcountry Seafood Boil event. A Cordova farm will be transformed into a seafood diner’s delight from 6 – 10 p.m. with wine pairings that will compliment the lowcountry cuisine.
The family-style seafood feast of boiled shrimp, crawfish, potatoes, corn and sausage will also feature music by a Memphis band. Tickets for the event are $50 and can be purchased at www.vintage901.com. VIP packages are $75 and include table service and a book by the Grand Sommelier Laurie Forster, The Wine Coach.
“Our inaugural festival was such a great success, I was eager to plan the next event,” said Vintage901 Organizer Stephanie Ferreira. “This is edutainment. I want people to learn about wine and have fun. Wine can be paired with anything.”
Forster is one of America’s leading wine experts and author of the award-winning book The Sipping Point: A Crash Course in Wine. She is a certified sommelier, national speaker and TV personality who is not afraid to tell you her first wine came from a box. Her edgy approach to demystifying wine has led her to guest appearances on Dr. Oz, FOX Morning News, Martha Stewart Living Today and ABC News at Noon.
Established in March of 2017, Vintage901 is a three-day wine festival complete with tastings, tapas, salsa, soul and jazz that brings the world to Memphis, Tennessee to celebrate wine, food and music. It features the best in artisanal wines, an array of local flavors with a nod to global sensibilities and music that blends the classic and the eclectic.
