Wistariahurst Museum, I Love Wine!

March 12, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

I Love Wine!, the popular annual wine tasting event at Wistariahurst.  For over a decade Wistariahurst in Holyoke hosted a sell-out February wine tasting in support of its educational mission and the preservation of the historic site. The 2020 wine event, which brought over 100 guests into the elegant space, was the last time Wistariahurst has been able to host a public event. On Friday February 26, at 7:00 p.m., Wistariahurst invites all to recapture that spirit by joining for a Virtual Wild Thing Wine Tasting Fundraiser. This interactive evening of tasting and discussion will be presented via Zoom. 

If we’ve learned anything this past year, it’s how to be flexible!

Winter storms have delayed the arrival of the wine for our event this week. In order to ensure that everyone has enough time to grab their wine before the tasting, we have postponed the date.

If you did not get the chance to sign up before, make sure you snag a spot now! We can’t wait to see you all soon!

Virtual Wild Thing Wine Tasting Fundraiser

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.

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
