New Tasting Event Announced
Posted: September 17, 2007

In the spirit of wine country’s harvest season and Oktoberfest celebrations, Edsel & Eleanor Ford House is introducing a new event where connoisseurs and novices alike can enjoy imbibing with friends on a crisp fall evening in a spectacular setting.  The inaugural Swish, Swirl and Sip:  A Tasting Event will be held at Ford House on October 4 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and features samplings of Michigan wines, beer from Detroit Beer Company, hors d’oeuvres and live music.


“Edsel and Eleanor were a social couple and enjoyed entertaining so we’re always looking for new, fun ways for guests to enjoy the site and experience it in different ways,” explained Jennifer Welsh, events and programming manager.  “Tastings are naturally very social events, so Swish, Swirl and Sip is the perfect place for adults who are looking for a night out with friends or for those who want to meet new people.”


As part of the ticket price, attendees will also have the opportunity to take an evening stroll through the historic home on a guided tour.


Tickets for Swish, Swirl and Sip are $25 per person.  Reservations are required and can be made by calling 313.884.4222.
