Three Blind Vines
Friday, February 22, 6:30pm-9:30pm
Wednesday, Jan 2nd
Three Blind Vines is an annual wine tasting event presented by The Next Generation Heritage Foundation of Franklin and Williamson County. This party for a purpose continues to give all wine lovers, from a boxed wine enthusiast to a fine wine aficionado, the opportunity to taste different brands of wine while benefiting a great cause: the Franklin Theatre. For this year’s event, we’re taking you back to the world of Mad Men and the Rat Pack – we’re going back to the swanky 1960s! Costumes are encouraged, although not required.
Admission includes live entertainment, food from your favorite local restaurants & chefs, and the wine of course! The extremely popular Silent Auction will be back this year, as will the cash bar for beer lovers. This year marks the addition of the exclusive SkyLoft area for sponsors and VIP ticketholders. SkyLoft guests will be treated to a private lounge, complimentary cocktails, and exclusive catering.
Check in is from 6:30pm until 7:30pm, at which time no more wine will be accepted. Teams of 1-3 people will bring a Merlot, Riesling, and a third bottle of the two. The first two bottles will be collected, disguised, and set out for tasting and voting. The third bottle is unopened to be given to two Grand Prize Winners.
From 7:30-9:30pm tasting and voting takes place. Grab a few different bottles and take them back to your table. Taste and make notes on the space provided in your program and then pass the bottles along to the next table so everyone has a chance to enjoy!
A the end of the evening, everyone votes for their favorite wine. If your team brought the winning wine, you take home the ‘vault’ of all the unopened third bottles! We will also be holding a costume contest, and a prize will be awarded to the best dressed male and female.
