Athens Wine Weekend is full of events for both the wine aficionado and those who'd like to learn more alike. This weekend features more than 100 wines from around the world, seminars by wine experts and an amazing Gourmet Dinner with wine pairings for each course. 

The weekend begins with an Amuse-Bouche, or “A Little Surprise,” on Friday evening from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m., featuring several of the most skilled and talented chefs from Northeast Georgia, who will each provide a sampling of their cooking artistry, all paired with the perfect wine to arouse the palate. Attendees are also invited to take a chance at this year’s Wine Pull during the Amuse-Bouche, where participants will play for top notch bottles of wine from around the world.

Wine enthusiasts are invited back on Saturday for the Grand Tasting from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., which will feature hundreds of wines from all over the world. Each attendee will receive a complimentary wine glass for tasting, with various distributors on hand for three hours of sipping and sampling. Guests will also enjoy the return of the popular Bourbon Pull, where every player is a winner and will have the chance to go home with a top shelf bottle of bourbon or whiskey.

Take your love of the grape to the next level by attending a wide variety of seminars from some of the most knowledgeable experts and sommeliers in the industry.

Saturday’s festivities conclude with an elegant five course, gourmet Portuguese dinner. Each course is exquisitely crafted and created by The Classic Center’s in-house caterer, Levy. Wine pairings are hand-selected to accentuate the palate with each course.

Round out the weekend with Sunday’s Sparkling Wine Brunch, featuring specialty mimosas and a delicious breakfast buffet.
