About the Franklin Wine Festival

Big Brothers Big Sisters will transform The Factory into an indoor vineyard for its fifteenth year.  Attendees will taste world-class wine, delicious artisan treats, and will have the opportunity to swirl, sniff and sip award-winning vintages from top distributors.  We invite you to join over 2,000 of our supporters to benefit Middle Tennessee’s youth.

Vintner's Dinners
High on everyone’s list are the Vintner’s Dinners that will pair the best cuisine in Middle Tennessee with some of the world’s best wines for a one of a kind experience.  This intimate event will pair the best cuisine in Nashville with some of the world’s best wines for a one of a kind experience.  As a sponsor you will have first rights to your reservation prior to open bookings to the festival guest. Dinners for 2019 will be determined mid-summer.

Silent Auction 
At the Franklin Wine Festival Auction you will find a diverse selection ranging from hard-to-find wines, fun getaway trips, gift certificates, and more. The auction is designed to appeal to every taste at every price range, and is held simultaneously with the Grand Tasting event.
King and Queen of the Vines
With all the activities surrounding the Franklin Wine Festival, the event is a virtual wine country unto itself.  In 2011 we made the call for a King or Queen to rule over the festivities, and this competition has grown ever fiercer with each passing year.

King and Queen of the Vines is a personal fundraising competition for individuals dedicated to supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters.  Candidates raise pledges prior to the Grand Tasting, then after much hard work and anticipation, our philanthropic champions are crowned on stage! 
The Grand Tasting 
Friday, October 25, 2019 

A truly “Grand” experience for both foodies and wine connoisseurs alike- this regionally recognized event pairs extensive offerings by Nashville’s finest chefs with selected wines from around the world.  Nowhere else will you have the opportunity to sample so many prestigious wines and culinary favorites while enjoying the best entertainment anywhere.
