“Drink New York” Dinner with Arrowhead Spring Vineyards This Thursday. Now With a Special Treat.


Just a reminder that our next “Drink New York” dinner is only a few days away! Thursday at 7 p.m. we’ll gather at the Riverhead Project to enjoy a wonderful menu prepared by chef Lia Fallon alongside some of my favorite wines from the Niagara region of New York, those from Arrowhead Spring Vineyards. You can read the full menu here. Over the weekend, I recieved an email from ASV winemaker and co-owner Duncan Ross, and he’s bringing something special for the end of the meal — 4 of his last 12 bottles of 2007 Vidal Icewine.

Summer in a Glass Dinner Event: Rare Wines, Local Food, One Time Only


When Summer in a Glass was published, I wondered if there could ever be a dinner event that brought together all the wines from the book. It seemed like a wonderful idea, but I figured it would remain only an idea. The work of pulling together such an event would be overbearing. But now it’s actually happening. On Monday, July 22, the Hole in the Wall Restaurant in Perry is hosting the Summer in a Glass-themed dinner. Tickets are still available for $150 apiece. If that price seems high, consider this: the restaurant is still probably going to lose money on…

NEW VENUE: “Drink New York” Dinner with Arrowhead Spring Vineyards Moved to the Riverhead Project


  Last week, Chef Lia Fallon left her previous job to become the executive chef at the Riverhead Project and as such, we’re moving our “Drink New York” dinner next week there too. The time, price and menu will all be the same. And, after talking with winemaker Duncan Ross yesterday, it sounds like he’s going to bring a special treat or two from the winery’s library — yet another thing to be excited about. Seating is still very limited, so please call the restaurant at (631) 284-9300 to reserve your spot.

Save the Date! July 11, 2013: Drink New York Dinner with Arrowhead Spring Vineyards and Jedediah Hawkins Inn


  I should have the full details by the weekend, but I’m happy to announce the return of our wine dinner series — renamed simply “Drink New York” — on Thursday, July 11 at 7 p.m. at Jedediah Hawkins Inn, featuring the wines from one of New York’s top wineries, Arrowhead Spring Vineyards in Lockport, NY. As always, we like to do things to make our wine dinners a bit different that those already taking place, so we’re thrilled that co-owners Duncan and Robin Ross (who make the wine and manage the vineyard, respectively) will be making the trek down…
