Event Description

May 19, 2015 Updated May 19, 2015 at 10:08 AM EDT

89.1 WBOI and Classical 94.1 WBNI announce the sixth annual Picked by the Pros Wine Pairing Dinner on June 19, 2015. The event is a fundraiser for Northeast Indiana Public Radio, and includes a wine tasting, a gourmet six-course dinner, and both live and silent auctions.

The festivities begin at 6 PM with a tasting hosted by WineTime, a Fort Wayne wine store. Guests will enjoy sampling nearly 45 different wines from 8 area wineries and distributors.

The wine tasting is followed by a gourmet six-course dinner. Each course is paired with a wine personally selected by our pros, Dan and Krista Stockman. For nearly seven years, they shared their love of wine in a weekly wine column in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette, and they also are the owners of Cheers! Wine Consultants.

Tickets $125 Individual • $800 Table (seats 8)

The event also includes both a live and silent auction. The silent auction will include over 30 items ranging from art to jewelry to wine. Live auction items include an Instant Wine Cellar with at least a dozen bottles of wine to kick-start your home wine cellar, and a package to recreate the Picked by Pros dinner at your house. Dan and Krista Stockman will set your menu and pick your wines before the event and lead an in-home wine-tasting at your residence. Krista Stockman says, “There's a reason wine lovers rave about food and wine pairings. It's not always easy to find that perfect match, but when it comes together, it's magical.”

As a public radio listener, we know you thirst for knowledge. You hunger for information about the world around you. You crave the company of those who share your passion for the arts and culture. There is no better place to quench your thirst, feed your soul and celebrate your local public radio stations – 89.1 WBOI and Classical 94.1 WBNI - than at the 6th Annual Picked by the Pros Wine Tasting Dinner presented by Lake City Bank and KPC Media Group at the historic Bergstaff Place in Fort Wayne.
