MenuforhopeMenu For Hope is the annual event when food and wine bloggers the world over unite to raise money for the U.N. World Food Programme. Founded by Pim several years ago, this is one holiday tradition that I hope never falls by the wayside.

This year, LENNDEVOURS is offering two prizes for the fund raising raffle:

WB19: Long Island Cabernet Franc Three-Pack
A lot of people think
that Long Island is all about merlot, but those in the know realize
that some of Long Island’s best, most-interesting wines are made with
cabernet franc. This lot is a simple one. It includes three bottles of
Long Island cabernet franc, including at least one bottle of my own
bottling (only six cases made!). Approximate value: $70

WB20: A Romantic Getaway for Long Island Wine Lovers
Island’s North Fork is one of the most beautiful, bucolic places in New
York. With beautiful vineyards stretching from Great Peconic Bay to the
Long Island Sound, quaint villages and rustic tasting rooms, it makes
the perfect spot for a romantic getaway — especially for wine lovers.
This package includes a bottle of sparkling wine to toast the person
you love, a night at one of the North Forks most beautiful bed and breakfasts —
including a gourmet breakfast — and a van wine tour for two with one
of Long Island’s most knowledgeable tour guides.

  • One (1) night at Harvest Inn B&B, including gourmet breakfast the next morning
  • Tour for two (2) with
    Vintage Tours, which includes a 5-hour tour of at least three wineries and a gourmet picnic lunch
  • One (1) bottle of Wolffer Estate 2003 Cuvee Sparkling Wine
  • Approximate value: $425
