While sipping a glass of incredible Long Island wine — whether a steely chardonnay, a berry-tinged merlot or a springy bubbly — have you ever wondered how they do it? That is, how the winemaker builds that incredible mix of color, flavor and aroma, turning a product of nature (grapes) into a drinking experience that can improve your mood, make your meal and inspire a smile. In fact, it’s not unlike how an artist births a painting or sculpture. And on Friday, March 21, at the Parrish Art Museum, three of our local winemakers will dish on the subject of “How Do You Bottle Creativity,” while pouring their wines for lucky attendees. Grab your ticket here.
With its maritime climate, concentration of small wine growers and proximity to the largest wine market, Long Island has one of the most dynamic wine regions in the nation. From traditional whites and reds to a new batch of bubblies, fortified wines and small-batch spirits, pretty much anything you’d like to drink is coming out of our local vineyards and cellars. Join three of our region’s leading winemakers, including Kareem Massoud of Paumanok Vineyards, Barbara Shinn of Shinn Estate Vineyards and Christopher Tracy of Channing Daughters, for this interactive talk and tasting, as they explain what inspires their art. Organized in conjunction with Edible East End and hosted by the Parrish Business Circle. Added bonus: your ticket will include a one-year subscription to the Edible title of your choice.
