Wine, art & charity unite for The Indiana Wine Experience Oct. 24
(October 17, 2014) â€” Wine connoisseurs can enjoy a grape-filled evening by tasting an assortment of wines during The Indiana Wine Experience from 6-9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 24 at Fort Wayne’s Memorial Coliseum.
Guests can indulge in food pairings, enjoy music from Joe Justice and enter-to-win an exquisite meal prepared by Taste of Home Cooking School’s Chef Karen Davis, who will share fall recipes and teach step-by-step cooking demonstrations the following day at 11 a.m., 1, 3 and 5 p.m. at the Fall Home Design Expo -same location as The Indiana Wine Experience. Additionally, guests attending the wine event can attend the cooking sessions for free with a ticket stub.
And for the first time, Wine & Canvas will offer guests with little to no painting experience a chance to create personalized art. Painting lessons will be held on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the evening, and guests will take home their very own 8″x10″ acrylic masterpiece.
