Zoo Knoxville Announces New Event "Wild Vine"

Posted: 02/25/2019
Zoo Knoxville and Rhizome Productions will host the inaugural Wild Vine wine sampling event on Friday, April 26, 2019, from 6:30 until 10:30 p.m. at the zoo.

With more than 30 wineries from around the world participating, Wild Vine will feature over 70 carefully curated red, white, rosé and sparkling wines.  Event-goers can also sample craft beer from five breweries and spirits from five distilleries as they take a liquid safari throughout the zoo.   Animal encounters, live entertainment and local food trucks will create the most exotic wine-tasting event in Knoxville.

Tickets include a keepsake tasting glass for unlimited sample pours from participating wineries, breweries, and distilleries. Wild Vine is the sip of Spring with 100% of proceeds supporting the Zoo’s conservation work that is saving animals from extinction.

Discounted early bird tickets are now on sale for $50.  Zoo annual passholders and Circle of Friends members can purchase early bird tickets for $45.  Early bird tickets are limited.  

Tickets and participating breweries, food trucks, animal encounters and entertainment updates can be found at zooknoxville.org.  This event is for guests 21 and up and a valid ID must be shown for entry.
