there's always time for a glass of wine

Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature with wine in hand at the first-ever Wine in the Wilderness! Visit with native species like bobcats before spreading out your picnic blanket to enjoy sips, snacks, and live music under trees adorned with sparkling cafe lights.

Event amenities also include a flower-wall backdrop for photos, keepsake wine tumblers, and access to artisan vendors for those who would like to do a little shopping. Plus, each and every ticket supports our animal care & conservation projects – so wine not? Join us for an evening of friends, festivities, and a glass of wine.
