If it’s one thing I love, it’s a good food festival. If it’s a food festival with adult beverages, you can definitely count me in. Today, I’m excited to host a ticket giveaway to one of the most anticipated food events in Chattanooga, Wine Over Water.

Let’s talk about Wine Over Water for a second.

Wine Over Water (WOW) is the premier wine and food tasting event hosted by and benefiting Cornerstones, Inc. (more on that organization in a second). This event features hundreds of wines with local food and music – all to celebrate the history and preservation of Chattanooga. This is where Cornerstones comes in. Cornerstones is Chattanooga’s only non-profit historic preservation organization. They exist to preserve the architectural heritage and urban fabric of Chattanooga and bring new life to historic buildings in the city. Pretty neat, right?

Now that you know what you’re supporting when attending WOW, let’s talk about what this year’s festival will bring. Oh it’s going to be good.

Wine Over Water will take place October 5-8 with the main event, taking place on Saturday, October 7th. What’s really exciting about this year’s festival is that it marks the addition of multiple events taking place ‘off the bridge’. This means WOW has made the shift to a multi-day festival highlighting Chattanooga’s culinary scene. YES!

The weekend starts with a five-course wine dinner at St. John’s Restaurant and ends with a bubbly yoga presented by Veuve Clicquot at Feed. In addition to the main event, there’s also an exclusive wine tasting, brewery tours and lots more.

    As everyone else I’m most excited about the wine!! I’m about to have my one year anniversary of moving to Chattanooga and I had only lived here a couple weeks when last years Wine Over Water so I did not know about it since I was so new.

    I am very excited to have the opportunity to be a guest at the wonderful and fun event on the bridge. In 2007, I was a wine pourer, that was so exciting and I met so many new friends. I would certainly appreciate the opportunity to attend this year and be able to be on the other end.
    I am just completing healing time from an auto accident where I had a concussion, what, a wonderful way to get out and start socializing again. Thanks you.

    I’ve never been able to attend wine over water because I’m always working in the downtown area… but somehow end up with glasses because people leave them in my bar/restaurant.
