Blue Moon Offers Chattanooga’s First Wine Tasting Cruise

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

A new monthly event is coming to Chattanooga with a wine tasting cruise on the Tennessee River aboard the Blue Moon. The first cruise is Friday, May 31, from 6-8:30 pm.

Cruisers will enjoy a full presentation of six boutique, high altitude, Argentine wines accompanied by light hors d’oeuvres, while cruising on the Tennessee River. 

The Blue Moon has been in Chattanooga for seven years specializing in private charters and Eco-cruises and is always listed among Chattanooga’s favorite things to do on Tripadvisor.

Co-sponsor Panoram Imports will bring aboard Mariano Cebrián and Camby Akers, two of Chattanooga's youngest wine entrepreneurs to introduce and talk about these wines from the mountain regions of Argentina. Wines from Argentina now account for more imports than Australian wines to the U.S.

For tickets, call or go online, tickets are $60/person and $110 per couple, http://www.bluemooncruises.org/cruise_wine.htm (*use discount code COU when booking online.) The phone number is 888.993-BLUE (2583).

Re: City Police donating two patrol cars to Kevin Muhammad's Nation of Islam: While I know it's unpopular to mention the wisdom of separation of church and state, this sets a dangerous precedent and should meet with concern from everyone who values religious and secular freedom.
