The party features sips of more than 100 wines and food from restaurants like Good King Tavern, Barbuzzo, Veda, Hungry Pigeon, and more. A portion of the proceeds from Opening Corks ticket sales will be donated to Broad Street Ministry, this year’s charity partner.

Tickets for Opening Corks are $65 for general admission and $125 for VIP, which get you into the event an hour early plus access to a sparkling wine bar, a raw bar, hors d’oeuvres from Walnut Street Cafe and XIX, and additional bites from guest chefs in the event’s semi-private lounge.
