The Winter Wine Affair at Stambaugh Auditorium is presented each year by the Ohio Wine Producers Association to showcase the state's many amazing wineries. Nearly a dozen wineries will be attending the 2019 Winter Wine Affair, including local favorites such as Mastropietro Winery from Berlin Center and The Vineyards at Pine Lake from Columbiana! Of course, there won't just be wine available on site; guests can also sample several varieties of cheese and peruse the event's many artisan vendors, all while enjoying live music!

When purchasing your tickets, you need to choose which session you would like to attend and whether you would like a standard tasting ticket or a VIP ticket. The afternoon session runs from 1-3 p.m. for tasting ticket holders, while the evening session runs from 6-8 p.m. By upgrading to VIP, you will be allowed to enter the event one hour early (12 for afternoon session or 5 for the evening), and receive both a cheese plate and a 6-bottle wine tote. Tasting tickets are $25 per person and VIP tickets are $35 per person.
