OUR LAST EVENT
PROSECCO! PROSECCO! PROSECCO!
Wednesday April 16th, 2014
Over 50 wine enthusiasts spent a delightful evening sipping Prosecco, nibbling tasty hors d’oeuvres (catered by FGK), and interacting with fellow wine enthusiasts in celebration of the Greenwich Wine Society's Sixth Anniversary.
Three different kinds of Prosecco, were served. Prosecco is a delightfully refreshing sparkling wine from the Veneto region of Italy. It is made from the Prosecco grape using the Charmat method. It's flavor is simple, fruity and light, ...a perfect bubbly for a Spring party. You don't want to age this wine.
The event was held at the C.Parker Art Gallery in Greenwich where we were surrounded by colorful oil paintings, Peter Max originals -- including pieces from his Marilyn Monroe series, and other objets d'art. There was lots of merriment and networking... definitely an evening to remember!
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
