Greenwich Wine Society
OUR LAST EVENT OF THE YEAR- HOLIDAY RECEPTION AT BLACKSTONES STEAKOUSE: DECEMBER 16TH, 2014....A CUT ABOVE!
A good time was had by all at our last event of 2014 at Blackstones in Greenwich. 40 wine enthusiasts descended down West Putnam Avenue to the newest steakhouse in town to enjoy Prosecco from Italy, Riesling from the Finger Lakes, and a wide range of other varietals including a fabulous Carmenere from Chile (Casas Patronales).
Blackstones delivered on the hors d'oeuvres with succulent sliders, crab cakes, chicken fingers and more. And, as always, our members had a great time networking, both old faces and new.
Thanks to all who attended this fabulous event!
2014 ... A VERY GOOD YEAR FOR THE GREENWICH WINE SOCIETY
We started the year with an Italian wine tasting at Polpo, followed by eight other fabulous events, including a Spanish wine tasting at Solera in Westchester, a Greek wine tasting at Eos in Stamford and a Cotes du Rhone tasting at the Tarry Market in Port Chester
Our Long Island wine country bus tour in August was both fun and informative and our Wine Lovers Cruise in early September was a sell-out. For the first time we had an Old World vs. New World tasting and for the seventh time (we've done it every year since we got started in 2008) we had our annual Prosecco Party.
2015 - MORE EXCITING EVENTS TO COME (STAY TUNED!)
We're still in the planning stages for next year's events which will likely include a wine dinner in the first quarter and a bus trip to Newport Vineyards in the Spring. Please check our web site to learn about these and other events.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY CHANUKAH, HAPPY KWANZA, AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
