On November 3rd in Suwanee Town Center Park, The Fresh Market will bring a unique, delicious experience to Wine Fest attendees. They will feature a selection of wines for tasting from their 90-point wine crates, with wine connoisseurs on hand to answer questions about each wine. According to Wine Spectator, any wine rated 90 to 94 points is defined as “Outstanding: A wine of superior character and style.” Found on a separate display in The Fresh Market Suwanee, the crates offer hand-selected wines ranging from just $10-$20. This program aims to bring customers higher end wines at a more reasonable price point with the selection of wines being changed seasonally.
The Fresh Market’s very own in-store demo specialist, Chef Milt, will be cooking delicious cuts of prime beef and colossal shrimp on site for sampling along with a variety of cheeses that pair well with their wines. “We really want guests to get a feel for the full Fresh Market experience while they are at Suwanee Wine Fest. We love being a part of the Suwanee community and our team is excited to showcase what the community loves about The Fresh Market,” shared General Manager Jim Healy.
