One of Oglebay Institute’s most popular events, the Festival of Trees Wine Tasting takes place 6:30-8:30 p.m. Friday, November 18 at the Stifel Fine Arts Center.

The event features a scrumptious assortment of wine and food pairings in the elegant, yet intimate, splendor of one of Wheeling’s grand properties. The 100-year-old Edemar Mansion (now known as the Stifel Fine Arts Center) will be transformed into a holiday marketplace featuring hundreds of handcrafted items by dozens of local artisans.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to browse the Festival of Trees, which features a variety of trees, wreaths, and garlands decorated by creative and skilled volunteers. Items are available for bid or purchase, and all proceeds benefit Oglebay Institute.

$45 ($40 OI members). Register online or call 304-242-7700.

More than the just wine…

During wine events, you can view the art on display in the gallery. As you explore the historic mansion, you will also marvel at the stained glass windows, grand central staircase, marble floors and the majestic fireplace in the formal living room. During warm weather, stroll through the gardens. You can purchase your favorite vintages, too. Most of all, unwind and have fun. Oglebay Institute wine events are great places to discover new wines and meet other wine lovers, too. These popular events are also perfect for date nights and evenings out with friends.
