Calling Ann Arbor’s animal lovers!
Aventura is proudly partnering with our friends at the Toledo Zoo in hosting…
The Toledo Zoo graciously invites you to enjoy the old world and our world!
Eat, drink and learn as we intertwine the old world experience of this innovative restaurant with our important global conservation initiatives. The evening will include Aventura’s signature tapas and cocktails along with a presentation from Zoo staff working Down Under to save Tasmanian Devils from the brink of extinction.
Join us for an intimate and very special harvest supper, inspired by the bounty of Spain's Priorat region—think coastal mountains, 100+ year-old grape vines, rustic and seasonally sublime Catalan cuisine. Act quickly if you’re able, tickets will fly!

Jet off to Spain for the summer and be transported to beautiful España with our Summer in Spain Descorchado — A Mix & Mingle Wine Tasting!
Sip on refreshing Spanish white, rosé, and red wines — discover the unique offerings of each region while enjoying authentic cured meats and cheeses. We can't wait to be your Spanish wine tour guide!
Join us and be transported to the Cellars of famed Spanish Winemaker Ana Martín Onzain–be enchanted by her stories and lovingly made wines, all paired with deeply authentic Spanish cuisine!
Ana is among the most influential and highly regarded winemakers in Spain and will be joining us at Aventura for a night of handcrafted Spanish wines and tapas! You’ll get to hear Ana’s story on how she became a winemaker “by chance” to becoming the lead winemaker at Castillo de Cuzcurrita, a Spanish winery built in a medieval castle, and one of Spain’s top consulting winemakers. She is a person of great energy and creativity. Ana has a beautiful story that has carved the path to the enchanting wines that you’ll enjoy. We can’t wait for you to be a part of the experience!
Even the most savvy Sherry or Madeira drinker will admit to never knowing enough—the learning (and enjoying) opportunities may actually BE endless. Aventura sommelier, Kelsey Wonsavage, is here to help with her next Wine Class installment. And yes. She actually gets paid to do this stuff.
Join Kelsey for a primer on both Sherry and Madeira, and what makes them both so elusive, sometimes daunting, and always exotically enchanting. Try both sweet and dry styles, and with traditional Andalusian and Valencian nibbles for keeping your wits about you.
