ATHENS WINE WEEKEND 2014
January 31-February 2, 2014
Tickets Go On Sale November 1!
Mark your calendars for the fifth annual Athens Wine Weekend, scheduled for Friday through Sunday, Jan. 31-Feb. 2, 2014, at The Classic Center in downtown Athens. The event is a benefit for The Classic Center Cultural Foundation, which helps provide performing arts scholarships for high school students and supports performing and visual arts programs.
The weekend kicks off with a special reception Friday evening. Featured chefs will conduct an in-house presentation of Amuse-Bouche, a sampling of each chef's cooking artistry, all paired with the perfect wine to arouse the pallet.
Saturday once again features a Grand Tasting, with hundreds of wines available to sample. More than 800 people attended last year's tasting, which also includes a seminar schedule covering a variety of topics presented by wine experts. A silent auction is also slated for Saturday. Last year's auction included a wide range of items from locally created pieces of art and jewelry to exotic vacations.
The weekend closes with an amazing brunch Sunday morning and a Sparkling Wine Seminar. Featuring complimentary beverages and a feast of breads, sweets and meats, the Brunch is the perfect way to close an extraordinary weekend of new discoveries.
