Building on 2014’s array of local wineries, distilleries, and restaurants, this year’s affair includes over 20 vendors and features craft breweries, food trucks, and even Hart’s Local Grocers. Attendees can enjoy their ten tasting/sample vouchers while listening to live jazz music and attending guest lectures and classes. Included museum admission caters to the eyes when the taste buds need a rest. MAG members receive a $5 discount on tickets ($25 general public). learn more
