Grand Tasting Stroll


April 27, 2019

Midwest WinefestSM Grand Tasting Stroll is held Saturday, April 27th, 2019 at Century II from 6-9PM. Much like the Old Town Walkabout, attendees stroll through an abundance of wine, food, and vendor spaces. Each area represents a type of wine, country, or region. Whether you already have preferences or you are looking for new favorites, this is the event to attend. You have over 350 wines to enjoy!

The Grand Tasting is a casual, fun event where you can roam through Century II enjoying good wine, great food, and friends all under one roof. Your departure through the wines of multiple countries and regions needs no passport just a ticket, which gets you into the wine event of the year! Come, taste and see. Where flavor is at the center of it all. Please contact Andrie Krahl with questions at (316) 264-8974 ext. 204 and for ticket information contact WichitaTIX at (316) 303-8100. Tickets on sale March 11, 2019.

Reserve Room Experience

The Reserve Room at the Midwest WinefestSM celebrates the best new wines available in our market. Each year we enjoy eight superlative wines along with great food prepared by a leading chef. Our wines vary each year but generally include Wine Advocate / Spectator 90+ point rated wines from California, Washington, Oregon, Europe, South America and Australia. With an exclusive early admittance to the Grand Tasting, VIP entrance with parking, and an enclosed VIP seating area where patrons are able to enjoy the great wines and food in private.

Guests of the Reserve Room also have early access to the Grand Tasting with hundreds of other wine options and samplings from the best restaurants in the city. The Live Auction offers a great opportunity to purchase rare and aged wine. The auction lots rival any charity wine auction in the country and benefit a cause near to our hearts.

Sold out each year, tickets are limited and over 85% of the patrons return year after year. Proceeds support Guadalupe Health Foundation which provides grants to Guadalupe Clinic. Guadalupe Clinic provides healthcare services to the working poor and underserved in the Wichita Community.
