Greenwich Wine Society
OUR LAST EVENT
Over 30 wine enthusiasts gathered at Polpo restaurant in Greenwich on March 25th to sample six seductive Italian wines along with out-of this-world hors d'oeuvres (e.g." to-die-for" swordfish oreganata, juicy meatballs, mini pizzas and more!).
The wines were all ,of course, sensational and delightfully enjoyed (among the favorites...Layer Cake Primativo, Casalino Chianti Classico Riserva and the Mauro Sebaste Gavi from Piedmont (DOCG).
After the event, a number of our erstwhile wine tasters meandered downstairs to Polpo's lively cocktail lounge to hear live music and for more Italian culinary treats.
A wine dinner at Polpo (also one of the most romantic venues in town),will no doubt be in the cards for a future Wine Society Italian eat and drink dinner-fest.
OUR NEXT EVENT…
PROSECCO! PROSECCO! PROSECCO!
Wednesday April 16th, 2014
Please join us on Wednesday, April 16th for a delightful evening of sipping Prosecco, nibbling tasty hors d’oeuvres, and interacting with fellow wine enthusiasts in celebration of the Greenwich Wine Society's Sixth Anniversary.
We’ll be serving 3 different kinds of Prosecco, a sparkling wine from the Veneto region of Italy. It is made from the Prosecco grape using the Charmat method. It's flavor is simple, light, and refreshing...a perfect bubbly for a Spring party. You don't want to age this wine...so let's party soon!
This is not meant to be an educational event (many of our other programs involve considerable wine talk). Here, there will be lots of merriment and a minimum of talk. This event is priced to please. We hope you can join us!

THE SPIRIT OF WINE
“The spirit of wine sang in my glass, and I listened with love to his odorous music, His flushed and magnificent song.
I am health, I am heart, I am life!
For I give for the asking, The fire of my father, the Sun, And the strength of my mother, the Earth, Inspiration in essence,
I am wisdom and wit to the wise, His visible muse to the poet. The soul of desire to the lover, The genius of laughter to all.”
William Ernest Henley 1849 -1903
