ABOUT THE EVENT
Saturday, Feb 8, 2020
Hotel Lafayette (391 Washington St, Buffalo) • 5 - 8 pm
On Saturday, February 8th, 2020 Step Out Buffalo presents a fun and approachable wine tasting experience - the second annual Cork Head Wine Festival.
The world of wine can be an intimidating place...but not at this fest. We love wine and we love learning. We’re passionate about trying new things and finding hidden gems - which is what this festival is all about. Whether you drink wine with every meal and travel the world trying new varietals and styles, or you enjoy the occasional wine tour and don’t even know what a varietal is, we’ve got a glass for you.
HERE'S WHAT TO EXPECT...
HIGHLY CURATED LIST OF 100+ CAREFULLY SELECTED WINES FROM AROUND THE WORLD:
We’ve called on super knowledgeable, local wine experts from across WNY to pull together a curated collection of over one hundred wines from every corner of the world to ensure you’ll have a quality tasting experience. All you need to know is - we got you.
EDUCATIONAL TASTING SEMINARS & INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCES:
But like, fun ones with wine drinking involved. You know those super knowledgeable local experts from WNY’s best wine shops and bars we mentioned above? They’ll be in the house along with winery brand reps who know their stuff. Throughout Cork Head’s seminar schedule you’ll get to have a drink with experts who will teach you a thing or two - from practical tips to fascinating wine facts you never knew you wanted to know. The guests at your next party will thank you.
ARTISAN VENDORS SO YOU CAN SIP WHILE YOU SHOP:
We're getting some of the best food and wine-related vendors in the region to come sell their wares, because what activity goes better with wine than shopping?
AN OFFICIAL CABOT CHEESE TABLE WITH DIFFERENT CHEESES TO PAIR WITH YOUR WINES:
Of course there will be cheese - and lots of it. We're partnering with our friends at Cabot Cheese to bring you a whole assortment of delicious cheeses that will go perfectly with any wine.
Need a palate cleanser? Some jams? Good eats? We got you. Enjoy a cash bar with additional libations, music, food for purchase, and more details yet to be announced.
WINE DRINKING FOR A CAUSE:
We’re thrilled to announce that a portion of all proceeds from Cork Head will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of WNY, an organization at the forefront of the fight to cure blood cancer.
Includes 1 hour early admission to the event from 4 - 8 pm, an upgraded tasting glass pre-filled with your first pour, exclusive access to the VIP only lounge with a private cash bar, and access to a bonus VIP only seminar
