Wine Tasting and Silent Auction
Wines of the South: South America and South Africa
Saturday, June 14 from 5:30 - 8 p.m.
Set in the beautiful Live Oak Allee, this year’s wine tasting fund raising event focuses on 21 superb wines from premiere vineyards of South Africa and South America. Guests will receive an engraved wine glass as our gift at the registration table and a wine expert at each tasting table will introduce the wines and offer tasting notes. Light tastes of hors d’oeuvres will complement the wines and Latin-themed jazz performed by Javier Jazz Project will add to the evening enjoyment.
A silent auction, hosted by The Friends of Brookgreen Gardens, will include select items and experiences. Proceeds of the wine tasting and silent auction support the development of the new Lowcountry Zoo exhibit, Waterfowl: Wings of Migration.
Tickets are limited, call (843) 235-6016 or go online for reservations - $50 for members and $65 for non-members. (Tickets are non-refundable, unused tickets will be considered a donation to Brookgreen.)
