Virtual Wild Wines

Join us this year for Virtual Wild Wines, sponsored by O'Looney's! This virtual event will feature behind-the-scenes animal tours, a silent auction, great food, and wine and beer tastings. Host of the event, Zoo Director Susan Altrui, will be your guide as you see areas of the Zoo not open to the public. From penguins to elephants to otters and orangutans, you will see first-hand the excellent care our animals receive and how you can play a part - all from the comfort of your living room!

The event will have all of the fun of the annual festival: good food, premium wine and beer and introductions to animal friends. One exclusive feature for this year will be a virtual wine tasting conducted by sommelier and owner of O'Looney's, Jonathan Looney.

This year will feature an online silent auction with incredible, unique items such as trips to Costa Rica, cozy cabin get-a-ways, private Zoo behind-the-scenes tours, and many animal paintings. The auction will remain open until 8pm on October 1. To see all the items for auction, click here:  here

Make sure to visit these local restaurants to purchase specially priced treats during the event!  They include YaYa's, Chuy's, Red Robin, Cantina Laredo, Petit & Keet, Bonefish Grill, Trio's, and Esters.
