Wine Over Water

Yesterday was perfect for Wine Over Water, an annual Chattanooga fund raiser organized by Cornerstones to preserve the architectural heritage and urban fabric of our city. The event is held on the Walnut Street Bridge, a 117-year old structure transformed in 1993 into one the longest pedestrian parks in the U.S. Over 100 wineries were represented in 40-plus tents. One particular standout for me was the 2005 Schlink Haus Riesling Kabinett ideal for an aperitif or dessert due to it's strong lychee flavor and light finish. This is an unusual selection for me since I don't normally like sweet wines— and this discovery is exactly why the tasting is so fun.

WoW has also turned into an annual party for the carpet industry and it was fun to see so many old friends and to make new ones. So here's a shout out to a few I happened to run into: John, Brenda, Carrie and the rest of the Shaw crew, Jack and Natalie from Mannington Commercial, Holly from Contract, Nat from Lees, Kaye from Milliken and apologies to names I don't recall… wine does not improve memory. Next year I'll take a camera.
