2015 Bouquets Wine Tasting

Due to impending inclement weather

As much as we want our guests to have a wonderful garden experience, your safety is first and foremost. With that in mind, we have decided to move the event indoors. If the weather passes, all food and wine will remain indoors, however, you are welcome to enjoy the Main Display Garden and the Butterfly Garden.


We look forward to having you here! Should you have any questions or concerns, you may contact our the Corning Visitor Center Info Desk at 440.946.4400, ext. 224.




Saturday, May 30





Thousands of spring blooms become a picturesque backdrop for an evening of sampling a variety of international, domestic and regional wines accompanied by great food and live music. 


Dress for the weather, wear your walking shoes; we’ll provide a reusable wine goblet and your evening’s activities. ¬†Leisurely move through our beautiful garden and enjoy drink, food samplings, and the company of others who appreciate nature’s bounty. This year, Tony Cuda and the Jazz Cats, will be performing traditional and modern jazz and blues.
