Dinners, live music, master classes, visiting sommeliers and some of the wine world’s biggest names — all this and more can be found at the second annual Wrigley Mansion Wine Festival, coming to the Valley April 28 – May 1.
Held at the historic Wrigley Mansion, the four-day celebration begins Thursday, April 28, with an exclusive Krug Champagne Dinner for 10 in the kitchen at the Chef’s Table.

The main event, the Grand Wine Tasting, held April 30, is a walk-around tasting that moves from the living room to the Garden Room and outdoor Garden Terrace. Guests will have the opportunity to sample more than 100 wines, talk and taste cheese with Chef Tracey Shepos Cenami from Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Gardens, savor Petrossian caviar, and enjoy bites from the Wrigley Mansion chefs.
