Season 6, Episode 17, June, 1, 2019
Today we are setting the table with Tennessee Wine - this is the weekend for the 3rd Annual 9 Lakes Wine Festival which features over 100 Tennessee made wines and ciders - it takes place at the Melton Lake Park in Oak Ridge, Tennessee May 31st and June 1, 2019 from 3 - 8:00 P.M. on June 1st.
My featured visit is with Winemakers Nikki Riddle and Michael Coombs. Nikki was named Tennessee Small Farmer of the Year by Tennessee State University and the UT Extension at the Small Farm Expo in 2017 and she is Co-Owner of The Winery at Seven Springs in Maynardville, Tennessee.
For his “Potluck Radio” series, Fred Sauceman recalls a Tennessee treasure, St. John Milling Company, and recounts its remarkable history through the voice of the late George St. John.
