Travel the world without leaving Springfield! At Wine Safari, you will travel the globe meeting animals from different countries while sampling wine from the same regions. This 21+ event is Thursday, Sept. 29 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Last pour will be at 6:30.
Wine Safari pairs wine from around the world with animals from the same region, so that you can meet a California king snake while sipping a pinot noir from Napa Valley, you’ll have the opportunity to travel to Argentina to sample a Malbec from the region while learning about Ally our armadillo. After that, you can venture to Chile where you can try a Chilean sauvignon blanc as you’re introduced to a chinchilla. Or sample a Bordeaux as you learn about our Poitou donkeys.
This 21+ event. Pre-purchased tickets are required to attend and include bottomless wine samples from 4:30-6:30 (while supplies last), hors d’oeuvres, animal interactions and keeper talks. Tickets are limited and can be purchased here.
