Heads up: This is a Step Out Buffalo hosted event! Which means we are 100% biased towards it and also that it’s gonna be good!


Cork Head Wine Festival

Cork Head Wine Festival ain’t your average wine festival. For this event, we set out to create a wine event we ourselves wanted to attend – that means tasting wines from around the world that have been recommended by people whose taste in wine we trust, learning what we like, and getting to know the ins and outs of wine better.

Here’s 5 reasons why this event is different from other wine festivals in WNY:




1. The Tasting Experience

Tastings are a given at any wine festival, we get that. But ours offers a curated tasting experience. We teamed up with local wine experts to create curated list of tastings for you from around the world – not just locally. Stay tuned for the list of 50+ wines available for tasting.


2. The Educational Aspect

Wine is one of our favorite areas of study. Hbu? When it comes to wine education, we believe in a fully immersive experience – AKA drinking is involved. Yes, our seminars will teach you a thing or two, but you’ll have fun along the way. The goal here? To create an educational experience that’s exciting, approachable, and leaves you with valuable knowledge to make your future wine drinking experiences better . If drinking with the experts is on your bucket list, you’ll appreciate these seminars.



3. The Pairing Bar

Food and wine pairings are just fun – enough said. The Pairing Bar will offer each attendee one wine and hors d’oeuvre pairing sample to experience how food and wine work together.


4. The Cause

Drinking for a good cause just feels better. But really, it’s one extra reason to say yes. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to P.A.T.H. (People Against Trafficking Humans) of WNY. The folks at this organization are working hard to end human exploitation through education, prevention and restoration, and we’re happy to be able to help support their cause.. And you can too!   




5. The Vibes

Listen, we host our events at Hotel Lafayette for a reason. It’s freakin gorgeous – DUH! On top of that, we promise to not have a bunch of cheesy sponsor tables all over the damn place. However that’s NOT to say there won’t be a cheese table, cause there will be. The focus of this event is tasting wine and learning new things about wine – so that’s what you’re going to get.


TLDR; If you love wine and want to learn what you like through sampling, get your tickets now and thank us later.
