Franklin Wine Festival

Franklin Wine Festival

There are four primary components to this fall’s wine festival:



With all the exciting components going on at the Franklin Wine Festival Grand Tasting: wine, food, live music, an auction, and simply great people… it’s like we’re a city unto ourselves. So we needed a King and Queen!

Enthusiastic supporters of Big Brothers Big Sisters conduct personal fundraising campaigns on behalf of the children’s charity beginning in later summer. All donations are tallied on site at the event, and it’s quite simple, the man with the highest fundraising total is crowned King, and the women bringing in the most donations is proclaimed Queen.
The King and Queen candidates hold many different smaller events as part of their fundraising… everything from a Fashion Show and Private Sale to private dinners and crazy personal quests. Why not throw your own tiara in the ring and join us?

A truly Grand experience for both foodies and wine connoisseurs, pairing extensive offerings by Middle Tennessee’s finest chefs with selected wines from around the world. Nowhere else will you have the opportunity to sample more than 300 wines and outstanding food!

The Grand Tasting is held Friday, October 21, 2016 throughout The Factory at Franklin. Ticket prices for the Grand Tasting are $89 in advance, $100 if you elect to purchase at the door, provided such is available.

At the Franklin Wine Festival Auction you will find a diverse selection ranging from hard-to-find wines, gift certificates, artwork and more. The auction is designed to appeal to every taste at every price range. Make sure to check the web site – – for an ongoing update of this year’s auction items.

From Saturday, October 22, to Friday, October 28 all the wines featured at the Franklin Wine Festival will be available at Cool Springs Wines & Spirits on sale! That includes allotted, hard-to-find and collectible wines. The Franklin Wine Festival is one of the only events in the country that is able to offer this special sale to its attendees afterwards. Cool Springs Wines & Spirits is the largest wine and spirits store in Tennessee, located at 1935 Mallory Lane in Franklin.

Don’t miss out on your chance to be a part of the most exciting wine and food tasting in Middle Tennessee. Come learn why everyone is talking about the Franklin Wine Festival!
