"We’re excited to keep Philly Wine Week chugging along and spreading the word that wine doesn’t have to be complicated, fussy or saved for a special occasion," stated Philly Wine Week co-founder Kate Moroney Miller.

Tickets to Opening Corks are now on sale. General admission tickets are $48 and a limited amount of VIP tickets are available for $90.

VIP guests will be able to enter the venue an hour early and can enjoy a Champagne bar and deluxe passed hors d’oeuvres.
