Farm-to-table dinners, local wineries, and an exciting take on conservation and sustainability
We’ve partnered with four local, environmentally friendly wineries whose wines serve as the inspiration for custom four-course, farm-to-table dinner menus created by our own executive chef, Brad Robertson.
Each unforgettable evening is set in a different location within the zoo – the terraces of Mahale Mountains, for example, or the Amazonian stilt house within Rainforest of the Americas, or the Cambodia viewing area of Elephants of Asia.
Along with the spectacular views, enjoy looking at sustainability from different angles – from agriculture to food and wine production to wildlife conservation. Each evening focuses on a different topic and features conversations with a curator or keeper, up-close animal encounters, and wine introductions from winery representatives.
The Sustainable Wine+Dinner series is for ages 21 and older. Seating is limited.
