FWS & Season’s know wines


Farragut Wine and Spirits, in partnership with Season’s Café, is providing community members a chance to network, learn, and enjoy food and wine through monthly wine tastings.

“Season’s … has stepped up to be really good about wanting to work with us about doing tastings, because there has been a request in the community to do this,” Farragut Wine and Spirits co-owner, Robin Purvis, said.

“Customers had been asking us for educational information. We just thought this would be the best way and most social way to get that information out.

“It’s a social way for people to learn about Farragut Wine and Spirits and also for people who love wine to enjoy wine with each other,” Purvis added.

According to Purvis, the idea of a wine tasting is to try new wines.

“It’s to introduce you to new wines, to let you experiment and step out of the box a little bit and try something different: the wines that you maybe haven’t even heard of or have been hesitant to try, that you basically don’t know anything about,” she said.

Six-month-old Farragut Wine and Spirits offers discounts on the wines served at all wine

dinners.

“It’s a way of saying ‘Thank you for coming,’” Purvis said.

“They do get a great deal on it. When you get a 15 percent discount on wine, that’s pretty good,” she added.

After hosting wine tastings at Fleming’s in Turkey Creek, Farragut Wine and Spirits has moved the events to Season’s Café in Renaissance | Farragut.

“We knew of Deron [Little, owner of Season’s Cafe] when he was up at Fox Den. We have just followed his career and love his restaurant. We approached him and asked if he would be interested in doing some wine tastings. He said yeah, he was all for it, so we just basically started pairing up,” Purvis said.

“Now we’re doing one every month, sometimes twice a month. It’s turned out to be great for both of us,” she added.

Purvis plans to branch out by offering other beverage tastings, including spirits as varied as tequila, rum and beer.

“We’re doing a tequila tasting July 14 at Abuelo’s and we’re researching or trying to schedule a scotch tasting, a rum tasting and a vodka tasting,” Purvis said.
