The Peach State called all food and drink lovers to Atlanta, Georgia for the ultimate Southern culinary weekend and they answered.  The sixth annual Atlanta Food & Wine Festival returned June 2-5, to celebrate the South’s main draws – its cocktails and cuisine.  

Praised as the “Hollywood of the South,” and a known culinary destination, Atlanta is the perfect city to serve as the backdrop to the highly acclaimed Southern food and drink Festival. More than 250 chefs, sommeliers, mixologists, pitmasters and artisans from Texas to D.C. gathered in Atlanta to showcase their remarkable talent and help guide guests on an unforgettable weekend celebrating the rich food and beverage traditions of the South.   

“For food lovers, there is nothing more appealing than spending a weekend indulging in exceptional food and drink by rock star culinary talent, especially when the experience includes a road trip to a fun Southern city,” explains Dominique Love, Co-founder of the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival. “Around 80% of US destinations are within a short two-hour flight to Atlanta, making Atlanta Food & Wine Festival an easy weekend getaway.  And the added bonus is that the Festival brings in the best-of-the-best from Texas to DC, so guests may have their feet in Atlanta but their palates will experience a weekend of all-you-can-indulge food and drink from the South’s best destinations.”   

SOUTHERN PRIDE:  the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival proudly introduced a number of new additions that will made the trip worth it – new series of Masterclasses; an expanded Advisory Council; new Tasting Tent location; a first-of-its- kind in the US pop-up Vineyard in the City in the heart of Midtown Atlanta with a featured Sunday Brunch; Destination Delicious: The Ultimate Road Trip kick-off party and lots  more!
