Join us for our 16th Annual Grape Expectations Wine Tasting Extravaganza!


Friday, July 18, 2014 | 5:30 p.m.

Wisconsin Club | City Club
900 West Wisconsin Avenue

Presented by Forte in support of the MSO

Be there for a fantastic evening of fine wines, hors d'oeuvres and music at our 16th annual wine tasting! Chat with area wine professionals in a relaxed setting that unites friends of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra with members of Milwaukee's business, civic, and arts communities.

You'll enjoy:

  • Great hors d'oeuvres and a wine tasting, including rare, limited edition releases and other outstanding value selections.
  • Live Music by MSO Musicians, Scott Tisdel (associate principal cello), Timothy Klabunde (assistant principal second violin), Mary Terranova (second violin), and Nathan Hackett (viola).
  • Wine cork pull—a fun opportunity to "blind select" from a variety of quality wines.
  • One-of-a-kind auction items: superior wines from around the world, dining opportunities at Milwaukee’s finest restaurants and private residences, exclusive excursion packages, wine tastings, and other unique offerings.

  • "The Board Recommends" (wine and music auction pairings) will be back, and bigger than ever.

  • NEW: "MSO Favorites," wine and music auction pairings hand-selected by MSO Musicians.

  • Special 12-bottle per case pricing on wine purchases at the event, including mixed bottle cases.
  • NEW: Express Checkout is available! When you RSVP, pre-register your credit card to expedite auction and wine purchases.
