Late winter, every year, the Westin Edina Galleria’s hallways and event spaces transform into a fine wine tasting event for the benefit of Second Harvest Heartland called the Vintner Ball.

The unique event features 100+ world-class wines. Each wine is selected by presenting sponsor, Kowalski’s Markets, in addition to wine distributors, connoisseurs and local businesses to create a unique event.

The event also includes wine seminars hosted by industry experts to compliment the tastings.

Beyond the wine, guests enjoy unique food tastes from local restaurants and artisan cheeses.
