Wild Vine

Zoo Knoxville is currently closed to do our part to prevent the spread of Covid-19, and because we are unsure when the Center for Disease Control (CDC) will tell us it is safe to hold public gatherings, we have decided to postpone Wild Vine.

Rest assured, we still plan to host Wild Vine later in the year! Please stand by as we formalize a new date for 2020-we hope to announce soon.

Your purchase directly supports the care of the animals of Zoo Knoxville, and is a critical fundraiser for our annual operations. Given the hardship the COVID-19 closure is creating for Zoo Knoxville and the loss of our primary source of funding, we would be most appreciative if you would consider holding your tickets and join us for Wild Vine on its new date.

However, we understand that this is not an option for everyone given the current situation. We will be sending email to all ticket holders, please follow the instructions to request a refund.

We love our zoo enthusiasts and hope you can join us for Wild Vine later this year!


Zoo Knoxville and Rhizome Productions invite you to the 2nd Annual Wild Vine, a liquid Safari featuring 60+ red, white, and sparkling wines from across the globe.

Tickets include a keepsake tasting glass for unlimited sample pours from over thirty wineries and breweries.

Additionally, guests will enjoy food trucks, live entertainment, and of course amazing animal experiences. It’s the sip of Spring with 100% of net proceeds to support the Zoo’s conservation efforts.
