Back by popular demand, the Society of the Arts is once again bringing the fruits of some of the world’s most noteworthy vineyards directly to your living rooms! The very popular Jay Nee of Juniper & Grain will be returning as the host of this unique wine-tasting experience. 

Join us for 2 exciting virtual wine-tasting events!

We will be exploring both Old World & New World wines at these virtual events. As a point of reference, New World wines are usually fuller-bodied, higher in alcohol, have lower acidity, and are much riper on the palate. We will explore these wines in January. Old World wines tend to be lighter-bodied, lower in alcohol, have brighter acidity, and show more earth-driven flavors. We will explore these wines in February.


The cost for each virtual event includes 3 full-sized (750ml) bottles of wine and will be accompanied by a suggested list of food pairings to round out the evening. So, gather some friends together to share in the discovery of a lusciously curated selection of wines in the cozy comfort of your own home.

NEW for 2023!
in-person wine tasting at Domaine Pterion


To usher in Spring, SOTA will be holding a 3rd wine-tasting event in person, at the picturesque Lehigh Valley winery, Domaine Pterion, 6501 St. Peters Road, Macungie, PA. Boasting a perfect south mountain location, Domaine Pterion specializes in dry European wines that are grown from their carefully tended vineyards on the property. The grapes are hand-harvested, fermented, aged & bottled on-site at their state-of-the-art winery.   

The event begins at 5:00 PM on Saturday, March 25, 2023. Seating is available at tables set for six. A tasting of 5 of their wines (1 oz. each) will be presented along with a charcuterie board created for each table. Jay Nee will once again guide us through the various types of wines that we will be sampling. Your choice of a full glass of wine will be offered after the tasting program. 


Tickets may be purchased for $65.00 per person. Save $5.00 per ticket when you purchase 2 or more!

Reserved tables for 6 may be purchased for $350.00
