Autumn classic Wine Over Water strolls back
This Saturday, Sept. 27, Wine Over Water will celebrate its 20th year as Tennessee’s premier wine-tasting festival. The event is the main fundraiser for Cornerstones, Chattanooga’s only nonprofit historic preservation organization. Cornerstones emphasizes the importance of revitalizing the buildings of our past and preserving them for the future.
As always, the festival’s activities will span the length of the historic Walnut Street Bridge, and a wine selection from more than 100 world wineries will be available for sampling starting at 5 p.m. Local restaurants will also offer various tasting plates for purchase. Participating restaurants include Terra Mae Appalachian Bistro, St. John’s Meeting Place, Café on the Corner, and Easy Bistro & Bar.
Stroll along the Walnut Street Bridge, wine glass in hand, and enjoy the melodies of talented regional musicians playing everything from jazz to bluegrass. Among them will be Ten Bartram, The Scarlet Love Conspiracy, and The Old Time Travelers.
Visit wineoverwater.org to read the wine list, review some wine-tasting tips, and purchase tickets. Tickets are also for sale at 212 Market Restaurant and Foodworks. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Cornerstones’ preservation efforts, and half of the cost of each ticket is tax-deductible. — Rachael Poe
