Second Harvest Wine & Ms. Cheap’s Penny Drive | City Winery Nashville

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Did you know that hunger is a reality for nearly 400,000 Middle Tennesseans? City Winery Nashville is proud to partner with Second Harvest Food Bank for a specialty wine label during December 2018! A single bottle of our “615” Sauvignon Blanc wine is $35 dollars, and 1 single bottle equals 28 meals!

In Middle Tennessee, 1 in 8 people, including 1 in 5 children, are at risk of hunger – meaning that they don’t know when or where they will find their next meal. A single bottle of wine makes a difference this holiday season!

Can’t buy a bottle of wine? We’re also participating in Ms. Cheap’s Penny Drive benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee! Since 2009, Ms. Cheap’s Penny Drive has raised more than $477,000 which has provide almost TWO MILLION meals to hungry Middle Tennesseans. Mary Hance, Ms. Cheap, had one goal in mind when creating the Penny Drive: to raise awareness of local hunger issues and raise money to feed hungry people. As the demand for food assistance continues to increase, Second Harvest must distribute more food than ever and we need your help.

You can make a big difference with the change in your pocket. With every $1 donated to Second Harvest provides 4 meals to our neighbors in need. Please give and give often! Penny Drive cans are available and donations are accepted at Second Harvest, Pinnacle Financial Partners and Wilson Bank & Trust locations… and now, City Winery Nashville! ‘Tis the season, Music City!

City Winery Nashville Awarded 2018 Oregon Wine A-List Award Wine Program Winner

Insta_OregonWine

 

The votes have been cast, the results have been tallied, and City Winery Restaurant Group has emerged the winner of the 2018 Oregon Wine A-List Wine Program of the Year.

The Wine Program of the Year winner sets a standard of excellence for an Oregon wine restaurant program with its depth and breadth of Oregon selections, participation in Oregon Wine Month, and educational opportunities for staff and clientele alike. City Winery exemplifies these qualifiers as it has a well-curated, diverse selection of producers and both traditional and uncommon varieties of Oregon wines. They also host numerous Oregon wine events and make a house wine from Oregon grapes, which helps to increase visibility of the state on their house wine list, all done on a large scale.

As well as one Wine Program of the Year winner, there are 129 restaurants on the 2018 Oregon Wine A-List, spanning from Portland to New York City and Stockholm to Tokyo. The nomination window was open to the public from January to October, and all nominations were evaluated on the criteria of Oregon-based restaurants offering customers at least 30% of their wines or 30 producers from Oregon, and restaurants outside of Oregon having wine lists with 10 producers or 10% of the total list comprised of Oregon wines.

Says Oregon Wine Board president Tom Danowski, “The fantastic thing about our A-List restaurant program is that it shines a light on some of the world’s most passionate advocates for Oregon—the fine wine directors and restaurateurs—who go out of their way to showcase Oregon wines on their lists. We feel they should be rewarded for introducing more Oregon wines in the country’s top markets and we want to say thank you for the support.”

With five locations—ChicagoBostonNYCAtlanta and Nashville—City Winery is headed by founder and CEO Michael Dorf and is a fully functioning winery (the first in NYC) and fine dining establishment hosting concerts, food and wine classes, and private events. Dorf and City Winery’s national wine director Rachel Driver Speckan are particularly pleased about the designation of City Winery as 2018 Oregon Wine A-List Program of the Year. “Both Rachel and I are so delighted with this honor,” said Dorf. “Putting on a wide variety of Oregon wines with the deep terroir differences between winemaking areas of the state, and showcasing all the delicious flavors Pinot noir has to offer, make our wine lists sing. We love turning our customers on to what we feel is the most exciting wine region in America.”

The Oregon Wine A-List Awards program is a partnership between Oregon Wine Press and Oregon Wine Board. It was founded in 2015 to recognize restaurants around the world that display deep appreciation, enthusiasm and support for Oregon wines as seen in the diversity of regions and varieties on their wine lists. To see the full 2018 A-List, make a nomination for the 2019 A-List and for more information, please visit www.oregonwinealist.com.

On Jan 29, 2018, one hundred and twenty five City Winery team members head to Puerto Rico for three days, where we’ll work to rebuild farms devastated by Hurricane Maria.
