GET WILD ABOUT WINE WITH SAMPLINGS AND PAIRINGS NEW THIS SUMMER AT HOGLE ZOO




(Salt
Lake City, UT) – Join
Hogle Zoo for after hours wine tasting events in the wildest setting in town.
Hogle Zoo has been working with wine brokers to bring visitors a selection of
wines that not only are available in Utah
liquor stores, but will also please the palate. Folks can come by themselves,
bring a date, bring friends; most importantly, it’s time to get Wild about Wine! The gate will admit Wild about Wine guests 30 minutes before
event begins. Different pairing sessions
will be held for three separate nights in August: the 5th, 12th,
and 19th from 6 to 8 pm. So reserve your spot now and get Wild about Wine with Utah’s Hogle Zoo.
