Sample, sip and enjoy the beautiful sights of The North Carolina Arboretum at its Wine in the Garden wine tasting and music series. Held every third Thursday of the summer from 6 – 8 p.m., the Arboretum invites visitors and members to come and enjoy a selection of sustainable wines carefully picked by the trained professional staff of Metro Wines in Asheville.

Celebrate the summer season with an evening in the Arboretum’s nationally known gardens while discovering new wines and listening to live music from some of Western North Carolina’s most talented artists. Each ticket includes a chance to sample four boutique wines hailing from some of the best wine regions in the world along with three hors d’oeuvre food pairings. All tickets must be purchased in advance (tickets will not be sold at the gate) and participants must be 21 years or older (valid ID required) to enter.
