FRANKLIN – A Vintage Affair’s annual, three-day series of wine events returns this April for its fifteenth anniversary in Williamson County. The popular fund-raising sequence is one of many ways the Franklin-based non-profit supports local charities and programs.
On Wednesday, April 15th, Sperry's Restaurant in Cool Springs will be the setting for a 5 course wine maker dinner called “A Vintner Dinner.” Each course will be served with a specially paired wine and a chance to hear from the wine maker. This is a VIP dinner for AVA’s top sponsors. However, there are very limited tickets available for individual guests who wish to join this very special evening. Individual tickets are $275 per guest.
On Thursday, April 16, AVA patrons will gather at Green’s Grocery in Historic Leiper's Fork for “A Vintage Affair goes Country” formerly known as “Vintage Champagne and Vintage Country Music.” This boots and blue jeans event has been a continual favorite among AVA patrons, and guests will taste fine wine provided by Robledo Family Winery and Moon Wine and Spirits and cold beer in an old Tennessee atmosphere.
