PALM CITY – Things are about to get wild as the Treasure Coast Wildlife Center welcomes guests to its inaugural Fine Wine & Art Festival at the Wildlife Center on Saturday, Feb. 2 from 2 - 6 p.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the Center’s Wildlife Ambassadors – the wild creatures who are permanent residents of the Wildlife Center - shop fine art booths, listen to live music, enjoy delicious food and refreshments provided by local food trucks, and sample a variety of fine wines. General admission is free and tickets for the wine tasting are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.

Attendees interested in the wine tasting can expect to sip and savor a unique assortment of reds and whites poured by TheWineMan, Gerd Hambsch of PRP Wine International.
