When you think of your typical wine tasting, do you …

Imagine having a glass where the glass growls back? Picture yourself sampling great grapes in the home of North America’s largest population of great apes? Think of something “extra dry” under the savanna sky? Wish you could try a wilder vintage?

Welcome to the Zoo uncorked! Enjoy sampling of fine wines, evening animal viewing, live music and tasty bites in one of Atlanta’s most beautiful and exotic settings at the NEW Sippin’ Safari presented by Georgia Natural Gas.

Stay tuned for details on our wine list! Additional food pairing tickets will be available for purchase.

Groove along to live music on stages around the Zoo:

The Regulars
Main stage headliner – Ford Pavilion
Equal parts Rock and Funk, with a whole lot of Soul sprinkled on top, this Atlanta-based band is fronted by dual-lead vocalists, siblings Lee and Lindsey Smith.

Gritz and Jelly Butter
Main stage – Ford Pavilion
Cover band Gritz and Jelly Butter specializes in finger snaps, head nods, swaying hips, foot taps, and good vibes with a seamless mixture of soul, R&B, Hip-Hop, Reggae, and Classic Rock.

Alex Guthrie
Flamingo Plaza stage
Blending soulful vocals, story-rich lyrics, and the organic synergy of the 70’s southern blues bands, Alex Guthrie gives you some of the most real music of our time.

Jules & the Gents
Friends to the Zoo and inspired by the great jazz musicians from the 20s to the 60s, this talented, authentic, old-school Atlanta Jazz Band has playing together for more than nine years.

DJ Ryan Baker – Mix Atlanta
