Wine in the Wilderness at Utica Zoo


wine-bottle-UZLions and tigers and bears and WINE! The Utica Zoo will be hosting Wine in the Wilderness from 6 to 9 p.m., Saturday, June 4th at their 1 Utica Zoo Way location in Utica.  You will be able to stroll through the zoo while sampling and purchasing wine from New York State’s best wineries, along with outstanding food choices from Utica’s best restaurants and Farmers’ Markets. We suggest you get there early because the first 2,000 attendees will receive a commemorative Utica Zoo wine glass. The Utica Zoo and Mohawk Valley Winery have teamed up and created a one-of-a kind label for their limited bottles of chardonnay that will be available for purchase. We can’t think of a better souvenir to take home from the night. Don’t worry non-wine drinkers Saranac Brewery will be there for your drinking pleasure. Add a little fun to the night and stop by the photo booth and get a free snapshot of the night. There will also be live music for everyone to enjoy by the bands Simple Props and Remsen Social Club. Just remember if you had too many wine samples or slushies Martin, Harding & Mazzotti will be offering FREE cab rides. All you have to do is call 1-800-LAW-1010.
