The Tennessee Golf Association has partnered with Stonehaus Winery to produce TGA Blanc, a commemorative white wine which coincides with the association’s centennial anniversary. TGA Blanc features a unique label which incorporates images of the golf course and clubhouse at Memphis Country Club, the exact location where the Tennessee Golf Association was founded on June 5, 1914. In an effort to help the association continue to promote the game of golf across the state, Stonehaus Winery has agreed to donate part of the proceeds from the sale of this commemorative wine back to the TGA.
