The 89.1 WBOI and Classical 94.1 WBNI 6th annual Picked by the Pros Wine Pairing Dinner presented by Lake City Bank and KPC Media Group on June 19, 2015 is SOLD OUT. If you missed the opportunity to purchase tickets please email Lea Denny at firstname.lastname@example.org with the number of tickets you are interested in. If a cancelation arises that accommodates your needs she will contact you so that you can enjoy this special evening with us.
The event is a fundraiser for Northeast Indiana Public Radio, and includes a wine tasting, a gourmet six-course dinner, and both live and silent auctions.
The festivities begin at 6 PM with a tasting hosted by WineTime, a Fort Wayne wine store. Guests will enjoy sampling nearly 45 different wines from 8 area wineries and distributors.
The wine tasting is followed by a gourmet six-course dinner. Each course is paired with a wine personally selected by our pros, Dan and Krista Stockman. For nearly seven years, they shared their love of wine in a weekly wine column in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette, and they also are the owners of Cheers! Wine Consultants.
The event also includes both a live and silent auction. The silent auction includes over 30 items ranging from art to jewelry to wine. Live auction items include an Instant Wine Cellar with at least a dozen bottles of wine to kick-start your home wine cellar, and a package to recreate the Picked by Pros dinner at your house. Dan and Krista Stockman will set your menu and pick your wines before the event and lead an in-home wine-tasting at your residence. Krista Stockman says, “There's a reason wine lovers rave about food and wine pairings. It's not always easy to find that perfect match, but when it comes together, it's magical.”
Share your passion for the arts, public radio, great food and wine with us on June 19th at the historic Bergstaff Place in Fort Wayne!
WBOI and WBNI extend special thanks to the event sponsors who made this event possible: Lake City Bank, KPC Media Group, Markey's Staging and Rental, Current Mechanical, Old National, Satek Winery, WineTime, and Vera Bradley.
