Culinary travel has become a really popular reason to hit the highway, whether it’s just to another neighborhood in your own town or to another city to experience their unique cuisine. Food and wine festivals are a great way to (literally) get a taste of something new while discovering your next favorite dining destination. The culinary calendar around the South is jam-packed for the first half of the year, so gas up your car and make an extra appointment with your personal trainer.

With so many entertaining food, drink and music events, this Memphis festival has to stretch the weekend to three days to fit it all in. A Perfect Pairing dinner, Grand Tasting and two separate brunches are among the highlights.
