Did I see that the Wine Tasting is going to be on an afternoon in June this year?

Yes, coming out of the pandemic we have shifted our amazing Wine Tasting Fundraiser to be a delightful summer afternoon affair at the beautiful Oxford Community Arts Center. While we welcome everyone over the age of 21 to our event, this year's tasting is scheduled to align with Miami University's Alumni Weekend.

How many wines will be available?

Keegan promises a wide variety of wines to taste. Most of those are included in your admission price; however, a few very special wines are served in the Premium Pour area for which you must purchase pour tickets separately.

Where do all these wines come from?

Keegan’s career and avocation has resulted in an outstanding network of wineries, distributors, and private collectors. Keegan calls on his network each year and his efforts result in the donation of an impressive variety of wines.

What are Premium Pour wines?

“Many people open their cellars and you have a chance to taste wines that are no longer on the market and would be impossible to get,” explains Keegan. Where else could you taste wines that are priced as high as $600 - $700 a bottle for $5?

Where do the funds raised go?

“Profits from our annual Wine Tasting fundraiser are invested back into the campus and community,” said Patti Hannan Liberatore. “Each year the Series brings nationally and internationally acclaimed artists to Oxford, and the proceeds from our fundraiser mean we have the resources to have them perform extra residency or outreach activities around the campus and community.”
