    Wine & Whales

    (PROVINCETOWN, MASS) - On Saturday, May 21, 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. - The Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies and Truro Vineyards presents "Wine and Whales," a special event to celebrate the launch of two new wines developed by Truro Vineyards in honor of the 35th Anniversary of the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies.

    The wines - Right Red and Right White - are named for the North Atlantic right whale, one of the rarest whales in the world. A percentage of the proceeds from each bottle sold will be donated to PCCS to support right whales and other marine mammals in Cape Cod Bay and beyond.

    Guests will enjoy hors d'oeuvres prepared by Blackfish Restaurant and a complimentary glass of wine courtesy of Truro Vineyards. Admission also includes a free commemorative wine-glass and a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of a number of eclectic prizes. The talented musician and song writer Kami Lyle will perform throughout the afternoon.

    The event will be held under the tent at Truro Vineyards, 11 Shore Road in Truro. Admission is $20 for non-members and $15 for members of PCCS. Buy your tickets in advance by calling 508.487.3622, ext. 103, and enter to win a dinner for two at Abba restaurant. Tickets will also be available at the door. Click to register for Wine & Whales.

    Special thanks to our event sponsors: Gatehouse Media New England, Seamen's Bank, WCAI, Truro Vineyards, Cape Air, Cape Cod Five, Elizabeth Rowley Gallery, Brewster Fish House and Nauset Disposal.
