Ocean Blue Catering continues a tradition with the presentation of the annual South African Wine Dinner. Held among the exquisite sea life of Mystic Aquarium’s Main Gallery, the evening opens with a cocktail hour showcasing guests of honor, some of the Aquarium’s African penguins! Join in efforts to help save the endangered African penguin populations while enjoying a multi-course meal paired with exotic South African wines.
