Happening Soon: The Winter Wine Affair

If you love wine, then you'll love the Winter Wine Affair happening February 17th in Youngstown! Featuring vintages from a dozen wineries from across the state, lots of great vendors, live musical entertainment, and much more, this event is guaranteed to make for an amazing night! Tickets are still available, so keep reading to learn how you can claim yours today!

Presented by the Ohio Wine Producers Association, the Winter Wine Affair will bring together many of the state's premier wineries for one night only in the beautiful and historic Stambaugh Auditorium! Over four dozen wines from 12 different wineries will be available to taste and purchase during this event. While you enjoy your favorite vintages, you can also relax to the music of saxophonist Stan Miller, shop from the many local vendors on site, and sample award-winning cheeses from Adams Reserve.

As if that wasn't enough, there will also be a fun and educational experience presented by the students of Kent State Ashtabula's Viticulture and Enology Science and Technology Alliance (VESTA) degree program. Plus, all attendees will receive a free souvenir wine glass to remember the evening by (you know, in case you have too much wine)!

Tickets to the Winter Wine Affair are being offered at two different times: an afternoon session from 2-4 p.m. and an evening session from 7-9 p.m. Both sessions are being held on Saturday, February 17th and cost $30 per person; however, for $40 you can purchase VIP access, allowing you to enter the event one hour earlier than the scheduled time! In addition, VIP ticket holders will receive a complimentary cheese plate and a wine tote!
