Together with the evening’s special guests, third-generation winemaker Gina Gallo and Connecticut’s only Master of Wine, Nicholas Paris, explore winemaking traditions passed from one generation to the next with the vibrancy of white wines from Friuli Venezia Giulia’s Jermann family, the excitement of Rosso wine from Mt. Etna’s volcanic slopes and the rich history of Barolo from one of its most prominent wineries, Renato Ratti. Discover the bridge between Old World and New as you cross continents, toasting with sparkling wine and Chardonnay from California’s Russian River Valley, the layered nuances of Pinot Noir from Sleepy Hollow Vineyard in California’s scenic Santa Lucia Highlands and Cabernet Sauvignon from one of Napa Valley’s most influential original wineries, Louis M. Martini, and their truly unique and historic 133-year-old Monte Rosso Vineyard. Proceeds benefit Arts Therapy Program at Mary Wade.
