In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, Georgia Winery will release a new wine to pay tribute to the American Civil War.
Battlefield 150 is set to be released at the Georgia Winery’s Independence Day Celebration next week. The new wine will remember the Battle of Chickamauga, the second most gruesome battle during the Civil War, fought only a few miles from the winery’s front door. This historic battle marked the last major Confederate victory, giving the Confederate soldiers one last breath of defeat.
The American Civil War, fought between 1861 and 1865, had a profound impact on the American nation as a whole, ending slavery, and transforming the practices of the South as well as the economy.
Battlefield 150 is a slightly sweet blend of five different grape varietals- the highest number of grapes the winery has blended into one single wine. The wine is set to premiere at the Independence Day Celebration on June 30 and July 7 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Complementing the release of Battlefield 150 will be live music by Sweet Georgia Sound and the Ralph Miller Trio, barbeque provided by Porkers, wine slushies, and free wine tastings.
