The Toledo Museum of Art’s popular Art of the Vine tasting series returns in July and August. The event features free, Docent-led tours of objects in the collection that expand upon the theme of the tastings. Six tastings have been announced and run from 7–9:30 PM on select Friday evenings. With the purchase of a wine tasting ticket ($15 members/$25 nonmembers, plus tax), visitors can sample four wines, light snacks, and a complimentary art tour at 7 or 8 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased at the TMA information desks; reservations are not required.
