Virtual Wild Thing Wine Tasting Fundraiser

Friday March 12, 2021 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for an interactive evening of learning and tasting presented by award winning winemaker Carol Shelton and moderated by importer/distributor and Wistariahurst Foundation Board Member, Gordon Alexander, owner of Terroir Wines!

We are delighted to, once again, partner with Liquors 44 who have been long time supporters of the museum and have curated our annual wine tasting event for many years.  We will be tasting Wild Thing Viognier and Wild Thing Zinfandel.  The evening will be a fun and engaging presentation about the wines and Carol’s unique methods for creating them.  We hope you will join us in supporting Wistariahurst during this time when we can not sip wines together in person, but can share in the camaraderie of a lovely glass with a nationally acclaimed wine maker.






How The Evening Works:

Following registration, you will pick up your wines at Liquors 44 (44 Lincoln Street, Holyoke only) between March 4 and 11.  The wines will be bagged and ready for you at the register with descriptions and further instructions for logging into the presentation.

No payment is made here online. Your registration simply reserves your bottles and your place in the online program. You will pay $60 at Liquors 44 when you pick up your bottles. You may share one registration for this program with a friend or family member with whom you would like to watch the program and share your bottles of wine.

This interactive evening of tasting and discussion will be presented virtually via Zoom.

Your $60 ticket price includes:

  • two bottles of wine (Wild Thing Viognier and Wild Thing Zinfandel)
  • access to an entertaining and educational online presentation
  • a donation to Wistariahurst Museum
