As much as I love the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival, it can definitely be overwhelming at times. The annual festival, which will take place from May 29 to June 1, includes various dinners, seminars, and tasting tents. The tasting tents alone are enough to bring foodies and boozies (is that a word yet?) to their knees with joy.
In case things get a little too overwhelming, I’ve gone ahead and created somewhat of a Lushworthy-inspired tasting tent cheat sheet for the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival (AFWF). Below you’ll find the names of a handful of brands that will all have tents during the festival. I’ve also included a brief description as to why I think you should check ’em out. Oh, and the three digit number in bold at the end of each description shows where you can find their tent on the official festival map.
Campari America – With over 45 spirits to its name, you can be sure that Campari America will be slinging some must-have cocktails during AFWF. 191
Savannah Sweet Tea Lemonade Bourbon – I’m not terribly familiar with this brand, but since I’m obsessed with the city of Savannah, bourbon, and both sweet tea and lemonade, this sounds like a solid tasting tent winner. 186
Wines Of Chile – If you’re a lover of all things vino then I’m sure you’re quite familiar with the wines coming out of the Southern American country of Chile. It’s said to be some of the best in the world. Even if you’re not a wine lover you should still indulge in at least a few sips. 209
St. Germain – Hands down one of my favorite liqueurs! Rest assured that whatever St. Germain is mixing up at AFWF, it will be delicious. 214
Three Taverns Craft Brewery – Craft beer made right in Decatur, Georgia? This one’s a no-brainer folks. 107
Patron / King Of Pops Carts – Homemade popsicles spiked with tequila anyone? The Patron-sponsored King Of Pops cart has gradually become a favorite among festival-goers. Their popsicles are also a great way to enjoy something light in between heavier tasting tent bites. 122
Ultimat Vodka Lemonade Stand – During AFWF, temperatures are expected to range from the mid to upper-80s. So, when you need help beating the heat, be sure to head over to the Ultimat Vodka Lemonade Stand for a refreshing lemonade and vodka cocktail. 164
Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream – I had the opportunity to sample this particular spirit at last year’s festival and it definitely found a place in both my heart and my list of favorite cream-based spirits. 119
