Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts Hosts Wine at Wolf Trap Benefitting the Foundation’s Arts, Education, and Community Programs

Guests will enjoy a five-course dinner with wine pairings, live performance, a silent auction and more

Vienna, VA (February 9, 2015) – On Saturday, March 21, Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts will host Wine at Wolf Trap, an intimate evening of wines and cuisine at The Barns at Wolf Trap. Attendees will enjoy a relaxed and refined evening hosted by Fred Dexheimer, one of only 219 Master Sommeliers in the world, and featuring a five-course dinner with French wine pairings, live music by The Olivera Quartet, a digital silent auction, and dancing in the rustic setting of The Barns. The fundraiser supports Wolf Trap Foundation’s award-winning arts, education, and community programs.

One of Wolf Trap’s signature events, Wine at Wolf Trap celebrates the creative intersection of wine and music. The historic setting of The Barns will create an intimate atmosphere as attendees enjoy expertly paired food and wine, all while listening to a carefully selected playlist featuring music from artists who will appear at the Filene Center this upcoming summer season – ranging from classical to jazz to pop. Additionally, a digital silent auction provides opportunities to use your mobile device to bid on unique travel and dining experiences, as well as fine wines and champagnes. The wines sampled throughout the evening will also be available for purchase at the end of the night, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Wolf Trap Foundation.

All support of Wine at Wolf Trap ensures that Wolf Trap Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, can continue to offer a wide variety of performance and education programs for people of all ages. Individual reservations start at $500, and table sponsorships range from $3,500 to $10,000. For details on tickets, sponsorships, registration, and to view the full menu, visit wolftrap.org/wine.
