Daily tastings will be available to guests 21 and over from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays. For added convenience, the Garden will offer an on-site PA Wine & Spirits store, open from noon to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, making it easy to purchase any favorites from the tastings.
Guests attending the show on Thursday, March 10, are invited to join a memorable VIP event tailored just for the ladies during "Girls Night Out," filled with shopping, health & beauty offerings, massages, makeovers, free samples and more. Those 21 and older taking part in this special night will have the opportunity to sample fabulous wines from the Chairman's Selection™ program, presented by the PA Wine and Spirits Stores.
"Whether exploring thousands of beautiful plant and floral designs, sitting in on one of the 150 free gardening presentations or visiting the Marketplace to find the latest in gardening products, the 2011 show offers something for everyone to see and do," said Stapleton.
