Georgia Winery Partners With Rock City Gardens

Monday, February 27, 2012

Georgia Winery and Rock City Gardens have officially reached a partnership after a year of crafting between the two companies.

Last year, Rock City sold Georgia Wines at the Summer Music Weekends in order to support a local winery. Sales went extremely well, which led to the two businesses affiliating a partnership. Georgia Winery received its official Rock City licensing on Jan. 7, which will enable selling and tasting of Georgia Wines on Rock City premises.

Plans are in the works to launch three new wines for Rock City special events this year as well as a Rock City Red in honor of Chattanooga’s elite tourist destination. Shamrock City Wine will be released at Rock City’s Shamrock City Festival. This green wine is available for sale and tasting at Georgia Winery’s main location and will be available at Rock City’s special event on March 17 and 18.

Other wines are in the works for Rock City special events including Rocktoberfest and Southern Blooms Festival. All new wines will be distributed at Rock City as well as Georgia Winery’s main location with a specialty label.

“We are thrilled to be working with such a wonderful and well established team. Rock City has been a staple tourist destination for the past 80 years,” said the winery’s General Manager Jesse Taymore. “We are honored to be able to work alongside Rock City and serve tourists from all over the world.”

Rock City Gardens strives to serve as a leading cultural entertainment innovator. By partnering with local artisans, along with the growing festival and event calendar at the attraction, Rock City provides high level quality and variety to the hundreds of thousands of guests annually.
