Vintage901 is set for March 2-4 as a celebration for wine lovers, foodies and music enthusiasts from across the region. Each of the three days will offer its own unique wine experience.
Festival organizer Stephanie Ferreira had dreamed about hosting such an event in Memphis for a few years before its launch in 2017. She helped organize a team of small businesses and other help to pull off Vintage901 also partly as a result of attending other such wine events outside of Memphis and wanting to be involved in one here.
About 650 people attended the festival last year. And the demographic is wide-ranging, with the audience encompassing everyone from millennials and young professionals to older foodies and wine aficionados.
The event’s return also underscores the visibility of food culture in the city, which also hosted a similar event – the second annual Memphis Food & Wine Festival -–at Memphis Botanic Garden in October.
