Don’t Miss the Nashville Wine and Food Festival!
The clock is ticking down towards this years Wine and Food Festival, and the Corkdork team couldn’t be more excited. The festival is a chance for locals to taste hundreds of top-tier wines while sampling Nashville’s local cuisine, and will be held on May 21st, 2016. This year’s highlights include a VIP tent loaded with premium California wines, seminars from prominent winemakers and sommeliers, and a complete wine list that sets this year’s festival apart as one of the finest wine festivals in the country. Here are some of our favorite features:
2016 Landmark Bank VIP Tent
What’s better than a VIP tent filled with Stags’ Leap Winery’s delicious wines? We’ll tell you: throwing Cakebread Cellars and Caymus Vineyards into the mix. All three of these legendary California wineries will be stocking the tables at the Landmark Bank VIP tent, open to all VIP ticket holders at the festival.
Kuentz-Bas Alsatian Wine Workshop
Join Maison Kuentz-Bas winemaker Samuel Tottoli as he guides guest through the wines of one of France’s iconic wine regions: Alsace. Tottoli took over the head winemaker position at Kuentz-Bas in 2004, where he renewed the winery’s focus on making distinct, terroir-driven wines that bear Alsace’s unmistakable style. During the workshop guests will taste his Pinot Blanc from 2013 as well as two of his select-vineyard “Trois Chateaux” wines.
The Most Extensive Wine List to Date!
Perhaps the most exciting thing about the festival is just how many wineries and importers will be there, offering their delicious products for guests to taste. The full list is being updated daily and can be viewed here.

We are thrilled to announce that we have set a date and a location for Whiskey Fest 2013 — this year’s festivities will be held on the evening of Saturday, September 14, 2013 at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
If you attended Whiskey Fest 2012, then you may remember that our focus was centered on local favorites; this year’s list of featured whiskeys will include Japanese, Canadian, Scotch, and Irish whisk(e)ys in addition to our American standbys.
The festival was a smashing success last year, but we want to make everything bigger and better for 2013, so we will be packing our schedule with a larger variety of classes, seminars, and special events in the days leading up to September 14th. You can also expect to see – and hear a lot more from us on the web and in the store about our favorite whiskeys and bourbons as Whiskey Fest draws near.
In the meantime, we will be making a point of keeping you up to date on the enormous selection of local and imported whiskeys on our shelves. We just received new shipments of Corsair Triple Smoke and W. L. Weller 7 Year, and we are also proud to be one of only a handful of spirits stores in the area offering a limited stock of Hakushu 12 Year Japanese Malted Whiskey. We are also expecting several shipments of hand-selected single barrel whiskeys any day now so you can look forward to brand new batches of some of our most-requested spirits including Blanton’s, Four Roses and Buffalo Trace Single Barrels, Elijah Craig 12 year, and that good old Tennessee standby: Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel, so please stop by and pick up a bottle of whatever tickles your fancy!
For now, we will continue to post updates about Whiskey Fest 2013 and related activities on Twitter, Facebook, and right here on the Midtown blog, so don’t forget to check back in with us frequently and be sure to let us know if you have any ideas or requests about spirits or seminars that you would love to see at Whiskey Fest 2013.
