3BV 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 varieties of wine while benefiting a great cause: The Old Old Jail, or as it will soon be known, The Big House for Historic Preservation.
Tickets are $45 in advance, $50 at the door, plus 3 bottles of wine of your choosing. Admission includes entertainment, food from your favorite local restaurants and chefs, and a cleansing bottle of water. The extremely popular Silent Auction will be back this year, as will the cash bar for beer lovers.
Check in begins at 6:30 p.m. and will go until 7:30 p.m. at which time no more wine will be accepted. Teams of 1 to 3 people will bring 3 bottles of wine of their choosing. Two bottles will be collected, disguised, and set out for tasting and voting. The third bottle is set aside unopened to be given to two Grand Prize Winners.
From 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. tasting and voting will 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 the chance to enjoy!
We are excited to announce that this year’s silent auction will be going mobile! You will be able to bid on items from the comfort of your own seat or even the dance floor using your smart phone! The silent auction takes place from 6:30-9:30 p.m. and the bid winners are announced at 9:30 p.m. along with the two Grand Prize winners – each splitting the vault of all the unopened third bottles. You could go home with hundreds of bottles of wine!
