To quote Miles Raymond, the misguided wine snob from Sideways, "This weekend is not about me. It is about you. I'm gonna show you a good time. We're gonna drink a lot of good wine.... We're gonna eat some great food and enjoy the scenery."
The scenery is East Nashville, and the event is Edgefield Uncorked, a wine-tasting and food event benefiting CASA, East Nashville Hope Exchange, Historic Edgefield Neighbors and Warner School.
Woodland Wine Merchant and Michael Skurnik Wines are working with Omni Distributors, Best Brands and Aleksey's Imports to pair wines with food from Alexander's Catering, The Turnip Truck, Journey to Bliss Raw Foods, Provence Breads, The Heartland Bakery, Chocolate Sunflower, Matilda's Fine Foods, Sweet 16th Bakery and Toney's Naturals. Live entertainment will be provided by local musicians Brooke Waggoner, The Love Drums and Ariana Terrell.
The event kicks off at 7 p.m. Saturday at St. Anne's Episcopal Church, 419 Woodland St.
A word of advice from Miles' miscreant companion Jack: "Do not drink too much. Do you hear me? I don't want you passing out or going to the dark side. No going to the dark side!"
