Description

On Saturday, February 16th, 2019 Step Out Buffalo presents a fun and approachable wine tasting experience - Cork Head Wine Festival.

The world of wine can be an intimidating place - but not at this fest. We love wine and we love learning. We’re passionate about trying new things and finding hidden gems - which is what this festival is all about. Whether you drink wine with every meal and travel the world trying new varietals and styles, or you enjoy the occasional wine tour and don’t even know what a varietal is, we’ve got a glass for you.


Here’s what to expect at Cork Head Wine Festival:
