America’s Best: Wine, Cheese, & Charcuterie Tasting

Monday, December 15, 2014 – 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Astor Center, 399 Lafayette St. (at East 4th) New York, NY 10003

The USA is proving that our wines can hold their own against even the most well-known wines of Europe. With wine production taking place in all 50 states (for better or for worse), we’re working harder than ever to produce amazing wines from a huge range of grapes, in wildly different climates from coast to coast, and in every style imaginable. What’s more, we’re producing artisanal cheeses and charcuterie that are as unique and distinctive as they are delicious. And what better way to learn about the various wine producing regions of the USA than to taste what’s out there alongside a few delicious cheese and artisanal cured meats?

You’ll get a sense of taste profiles and flavor notes and pair each woodsy drought with a cheese that brings out its specific character. Unwind and escape the hectic holidays with cheese and booze!
