More than the just wine…

During wine events, you will enjoy four to six wines and heavy hors d’ oeuvres. And learn tips on selecting and serving wines. You can also view the art on display in the gallery. As you explore the historic mansion, you will 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. Although events begin at 6:30 p.m., you can arrive early to meet the friendly staff.  And, at some events, guided tours of the art exhibit are offered at 6 p.m.

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.
