Drink Your Values: Savor Wine Boutique's Organic Wine and Food Fair in Kirkwood

Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you a few of our favorite things: eco-friendly wine tastings, a green pop-up market featuring organic edibles from local vendors, live entertainment and the opportunity to help end hunger in Georgia. And the best part? It’s all in Kirkwood, one of Atlanta’s most historic communities.

What To Expect

  • Admission for one to the Organic Wine & Food Fair on Sunday, October 25 from 1-5 p.m.
  • All-you-can-sample varieties of sustainable wines, including organic, vegan and fair trade
  • Unlimited tastes of organic, locally grown and produced foods from our favorite places like the Spotted Trotter, Golda Kombucha and Organic Mountain Honey
  • Entry to win a wine tasting party for you and your friends when you donate three or more food items to the Hosea Feed the Hungry food drive
  • A discount on wines purchased at Savor Wine Boutique during the festival

Scout Notes

We know about red wine, white wine, and have even partaken in a delightful blush from time to time, but now we're totally into green wine. No, not wine that’s the color green (although our curiosity has been piqued). We're talking about wine that’s been created with organic and sustainable principles in mind- you know, green. With more and more people taking the initiative to buy organic foods and foods produced with sustainable farming practices on small farms, it’s not a stretch to extend that initiative to the liquid imbibements as well. Enter the fine folks over at Savor Wine Boutique, who are celebrating everything great about organic food and wine in the heart of Kirkwood. For those who don’t know about Savor Wine Boutique, here’s the skinny: they carry small batch wine from smaller, family owned estates, nothing is mass produced and there are no “grocery store wines.” The store’s mission (and festival mission) is in line with the “drink your values” movement, which believes we don’t need chemical fertilizers and pesticides in our food OR our wine. Savor carries wines from all over the world, and most of it is sustainably produced. Their wines not only make us feel good when we drink them, but also make us feel good about drinking them.

So now that you know all about Savor Wine Boutique, it’s time to jump right into another of our favorite things: a neighborhood festival. We must say, unlimited samplings of the very best artisan wines in the market- many of which are organic, sustainable, bio-dynamic, fair trade and vegan, can only be made better by adding in tastings of local organic produce and foods. Some of our favorite local businesses are there, so we’re gearing up for a belly-full of Spotted Trotter meats, Organic Mountains Honey, Golda Kombacha and more. So all that food and wine needs a soundtrack, right? Thank goodness for the DJ who keeps the party going and the artists at Guitar Shed, who are keeping it neighborly by providing live acoustic tunes.

The Organic Wine & Food Fair also stays true to their values with a food drive for Hosea Feed the Hungry. The very same Hosea L. Williams that the main drag in Kirkwood is named after created a nonprofit dedicated to feeding the hungry, breaking the cycle of poverty and ending homelessness- all causes we can get behind. So while you’re sippin’ organic wines and samplin’ tasty treats, make sure you bring three or more canned or boxed food items for the food drive. As if you need any more motivation to help the community, if you participate in the food drive, you’ll be entered to win prizes from fair vendors, including a huge wine tasting party for you and your friends. So let’s recap: enjoy a luscious red or a fresh white, but make sure to keep it green every time.
