Join us for The Wine Social-not so regular wine tasting event with lions, where you will be able to visually interact with animals while tasting wine, assuming you have good life insurance policy :) It is more like a wine tasting on steroids.

Did you know the lion prefers Cabernet Sauvignon while tigers and cougars (not those) prefer Chardonnay?

Well, not really, but did you know you could also attend a wine tasting event over here?

Confused with all the different varieties? Acquiring a taste for good wine is easier than you think. It's mostly a matter of sampling a variety of wines and discovering what you like, and letting your taste buds become accustomed to the flavors of wine characteristics. With many different wines from variety of different regions and different countries, there will be something out there for everyone!

Grapes to Bottles will wow you with our fabulous cheese bar. But please eat a hearty meal before attending the tasting as the only food available at the zoo is for the Big Cats. And they don't like to share.

This isn't your normal, stuffy wine event. We encourage you to take advantage of our wine social photo area. To capture embarrassing pictures of your friends, or maybe just of you and yours enjoying a delightful evening of wine tasting. Take snap shots of your favorite wines to check out for your next dinner party. But most importantly join our community by posting your favorites to your Instagram using the hashtag #grapestobottles

Parking: Free Parking At Zoo's Main Parking Lot. After you park, use main entrance to the Zoo. Look for Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country Building, or go towards the roar :)

Please sample responsibly and use a designated driver (over-served guests will be used for lion's entertainment).
