TASTE OF THE NATION ORLANDO! Raise a Glass at Eola Wine Company To End Childhood Hunger

Taste of the Nation Orlando’s childhood hunger relief efforts will flow like wine at  a series of weekly wine tasting events at Eola Wine Company, 430 East Central Blvd, downtown Orlando.

Running from July 10 – Aug. 7., Eola Wine Company’s wine tastings benefitting Taste of the Nation Orlando take place 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. each Wednesday and are open to the public. Guests are invited to enjoy unlimited wines by the glass for a $10 donation. A glass or two of wine helps fund the feeding programs of Taste of the Nation’s two beneficiaries, Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida and Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
