Museum of the Rockies has announced a new twist to its annual Wine Classic benefit event. This year the name will change to the Wine & Culinary Classic to reflect the remarkable talents of the chefs, caterers and restaurants in and around Southwest Montana.

The date for this year's 14th Annual Wine & Culinary Classic is set for Saturday, July 11, from 5:30 to 10 p.m.

One of the largest under-one-tent events in Montana and held on the museum's grounds, MOR's Wine & Culinary Classic has earned a reputation for attracting wine and food enthusiasts from across the country, as well as those who simply enjoy learning about wine and sampling the finest foods. Museum patrons and guests will enjoy friends and fun as they sip over 80 varieties of wine, savor delicious food from more than 16 local caterers and restaurants and, most importantly, support Museum of the Rockies.

Tickets are now available to this celebrated benefit event and are $150 for MOR members, $175 for non-members. Tickets to the 14th Annual Wine & Culinary Classic can be purchased by calling 406-994-1998
