14 Oct Suwanee Wine Fest
We were blessed with a beautiful but windy fall day for the 2nd Annual Suwanee Wine Fest.
Arriving in plenty of time to unload & stage our tent for the festival, we were greeted and helped by many volunteers to get our wagon unloaded and to our assigned spot. This was our first event using our tent weights and the fall crosswinds put us to the test. Once Clark hung our 8-foot banner, the gusts made us wonder if we would get to stay and enjoy the festival or if we’d be meeting folks in the Kansas heartland.
We met a lot of people that had never tried our taste of Northeast Georgia wine country. Clark & I have become pretty good at estimating crowds and based on cracker, cookies & cream cheese that we sampled, upwards of 3000 people were there. Suwanee really loves Unicoi Preserves and we are looking forward to expanding our market in the area.
There were over 200 international wines to sample, a craft beer tent, food trucks and live music all benefiting Annadale Village, a non-profit organization that provides life assistance to adults with traumatic brain injuries & developmental disabilities.
Cheers & many thanks to the sponsors of such a well run event:
