The Memphis Food & Wine Festival Showcased the Best the South has to Offer
Building on the success of the inaugural event, the Memphis Food and Wine Festival brought more chefs and wineries to the 2017 festival. More than 34 chefs and nearly 40 wineries dazzled festival goers Saturday in support of FedExFamilyHouse — a home-away-from home for out-of-town families with children receiving treatment at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.
To top off the entire impressive chef lineup, acclaimed French Chef Guy Savoy joined this year’s’ Memphis Food & Wine Festival. Guy Savoy has built a collection of five respected Paris restaurants; his crown jewel and flagship restaurant is Restaurant Guy Savoy, for which he holds three Michelin Stars and is consistently chosen by top international restaurant critics as one of the world’s greatest fine-dining establishments. Guy Savoy’s must-try second flagship is located in Caesars Palace, Las Vegas.
While enjoying the Live Garden space at the Memphis Botanic Garden, we sampled more than 150 wines from nearly 40 vintners and wineries. 

The best of Memphis music rounded out the experience. Ghost Town Blues Band and The Jack Rowell Royal Blues Band provided the bluesy, soulful sound — that can only be found in Memphis — for an exciting evening under the stars.

The Memphis Food and Wine Festival (MFWF) is a 501(c)(3) organization founded to showcase Memphis’ culinary talent while raising funds for a selected non-profit. The inaugural event, with more than 1600 festival-goers and the contributions of sponsors, raised $100,000 to benefit FedExFamilyHouse at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN.
