For 22 years, Sip Around the World presented by Athens Distributing has been the premier fundraising and awareness event for the National Kidney Foundation in the Mid-South. To make this year’s event even bigger and better we need your support.

One in three American adults is at the risk for kidney disease which often has no symptoms, and it can go undetected until it is very advanced. In order to meet our mission and raise funds for kidney research in support of the National Kidney Foundation we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals just like you, we wouldn’t be able to serve those in our community each year.

Sip Around the World is one of the largest wine tasting event in the state of Tennessee. This popular event draws over 1,200 people year after year. Guests have access to over 300 wines from over 100 wineries located in some of the most sought after and emerging wine regions in the world, including California, Oregon, Italy, Argentina, Spain and more!



Help make this year’s SIP AROUND THE WORLD wine tasting another huge success!
