Sustainable Wine+Dinner Series 2024

Farm-to-table dinners, local wineries, and an exciting take on conservation and sustainability

For these exclusive evenings under the stars at the L.A. Zoo, we’ve partnered with California wineries whose offerings serve as the inspiration for custom four-course menus created by our own executive chef, Adam Young. 

Along with the spectacular views of the Zoo, guests will be able to see sustainability from different angles—from agriculture to food and wine production to wildlife conservation. Each evening focuses on a different topic and features conversations with a curator or keeper and wine introductions from winery representatives.  

$175 / $165 for GLAZA Members 

Limited tickets available online only. Must be 21+.
