Tastings at the Arboretum
Our tasting programs give you an opportunity to taste delicious craft beer, wine and craft spirits while taking in the beauty of the garden. Many of the tastings are held prior to the Cool Thursdays Concerts and offer a great way to unwind before the concert.
Whichever tasting you choose, you are sure to enjoy connecting with nature with friends and learning about some of the wonderful wines, craft beers and spirits that are being made here in Dallas and around the world.
