WGBY Wine, Beer & Food Tasting
March 15, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
It’s the region’s largest benefit wine, craft beer, and food tasting event — and the tastiest way to support public media!
The WGBY Wine, Craft Beer & Food Tasting (https://wgby.org/tasting) features over 300 wines and craft beers from more than 70 vendors. PLUS! Taste specialty foods from 20+ local chefs and food artisans.
Taking up three large functional halls atop the Tower Square Hotel Springfield, this event benefits local PBS station WGBY and educational public television. Sponsored by Table & Vine and Big Y World Class Market.
Tickets available using the form on this page or at https://wgby.org/wine. Offline tickets available through Marie Waechter, WGBY’s Director of Community Relations and Events, by phone at 413-781-2801, Ext. 1547 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
Tickets will be available at the door the evening of the event only until supplies last.
WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?
For over 30 years, supporters of public television and PBS member station WGBY have put their palates to work to help raise funds for the programs they trust and love. But the good feeling you get from participating in this charity event isn’t the only benefit.
With a general admission or “Wine Connoisseur” upgrade, you will be able to sample a wide variety (over 300, in fact) of wines, beers, and food specialties.
Each guest will be given a “Tasting Program” that will list each item available for sample (and all wines and beers will be available for purchase through event sponsor Table & Vine). We encourage wine tasters to make note of grape varietals, vineyard designations, appellations, and styles.
WHAT IS A CONNOISSEUR UPGRADE?
While all the wines available for tasting at the WGBY Wine Lovers Weekend have been carefully selected, some wines are especially rare or valuable. Exclusive access to this special selection of finer wines is available with a Connoisseur Upgrade.
WHAT ABOUT AGE LIMITS & SAFETY?
The WGBY Wine Lovers Weekend is an adult-only (21+ years of age) affair. Responsible drinking is strongly encouraged. That being said, the event takes place at the Tower Square Hotel Springfield, which has rooms available. In addition, the Yellow Cab taxi company (413-739-9999) will be operating independently each night of Wine Weekend.
