Toledo Museum of Art Announces Schedule for New Wine Tastings Paired with Art Tours

The Toledo Museum of Art’s popular wine tasting series has been enhanced for 2012 with the addition of free, Docent-led tours of objects in the collection that expand upon the theme of the tastings. For example, the first tasting in the series features wine by women winemakers, and the theme of the related tour is women artists. Eight tastings spanning January 13 through April 13 are slated.

The series—called “Art of the Vine”—runs from 7–9:30 p.m. on select Friday evenings during It’s Friday! programming. 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.

Locations for the 30-minute tours can be found online, or at the wine tasting galleries as listed below. Visit for the full schedule.
