Wineries, meaderies, cideries and distilleries operating in Georgia will be honored for products made in Georgia.
The reception will feature gold medal winners in all those areas at a grand tasting along with passed light hors d’oeuvres.
Dishes for the reception and following banquet will reflect the culinary traditions of the South, especially Georgia. During the three-course banquet, the top awards will be announced and the grand trophies and other honors presented to their recipients. Glass trophies are made by family-owned Lillie Glassblowers in Smyrna, and will be on display during the reception.
While attire for the event can range from business casual to glitter gear, guests should opt for nice garments as photos may be taken during the gala for display on the Challenge web site and other promotional purposes.
