You don’t have to be a sommelier to love wine. Anyone can attend this year’s Ice Miller Indy Wine Fest, which will showcase both locally produced wines, as well as national and international vintages. The event will take place at The Grand Hall in Union Station at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Friday, March 2, 2012. Whether you’re a fan of cabernet, malbec or merlot; red wine or white; this is an opportunity to not only enjoy some fine wine and stimulating conversation, but to do so in one of Indianapolis’ most historic structures.
Union Station made the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. It was the first union station in the world back when it first opened in 1853. After a rebuild by Pennsylvania Railroad architect, Thomas Rodd, to accommodate increasingly larger railway travelers, the new station was officially re-opened in 1888, where it has stood ever since. The station’s clock tower still stands today.
While general admission prices are affordable, guests who pay for premium tickets will have access to a special Connoisseurs Area on the balcony stocked with specialty wines and foods.
WFYI Public Media will cover the event, and proceeds will benefit WFYI Public Media’s various programs and other life learning services.
