Where can you enjoy samples of aromatic wines from around the world while helping college students raise scholarship funds? At St. Ambrose University’s Wine Festival, of course!

The St. Ambrose Wine Festival has successfully raised more than one million dollars for student scholarships throughout its fifteen-year history. There is a trio of events to help raise these funds, and the annual Wine Tasting night is upon us!

On Saturday May 20 from 3-6 p.m. at the St. Ambrose University campus (518 W Locust St Davenport) you can enjoy an afternoon of wine sampling and excellent food from local restaurants. Tickets are $45 per person before May 19 at 1 p.m. or $50 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at: https://epay.sau.edu/C21430_ustores/web/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCTID=3.

The festival’s vintner, Dimitri Papageorgiou, will be offering his years of experience in the wine industry by assembling an impressive assortment from California to Germany to New Zealand.

You don’t want to miss this signature event!
