Participants must provide their email to a City Winery staff member in order to be in the running.
During the event, the Founder and CEO of City Winery, Michael Dorf will give guests an intimate tour of the newly completed location. He will kick-off the tour with a toast at 5 p.m. to celebrate this iconic day.

City Winery Philadelphia offers a unique combination of wine and concertgoers that cannot be found anywhere else in the city. The brand new location includes two performance venues; a 300-seat intimate concert hall and a smaller 150-capacity loft space. Both of these venues offer full food and beverage service during concerts and have trained staff to provide superior service without compromising the listening and/or viewing experience.
