Wine Over Water is Tennessee's premier wine-tasting festival. You can sample wines from over 100 world wineries, while you stroll the historic Walnut Street Bridge, which spans the scenic Tennessee river. Built in 1890, it's one of the world's longest pedestrian bridges and was the first bridge to link Downtown Chattanooga to the North Shore. It is also the first non-military highway bridge to cross the Tennessee river.
Throughout the festival, area restaurants will offer a variety of tasting plates for purchase. Enjoy wine selections from all corners of the globe, while talented regional musicians entertain you with everything from jazz to classic bluegrass.
Friday evening is our premier wine tasting event from Best Cellars and it's held in celebration of our festival sponsors. Sample from 150 exceptional premium wines and enjoy heavy hors o’deuvres and an incredible silent auction. Tickets are available for purchase but this venue is extremely limited and tickets are only available on-line.
