Just a quick update about the first LENNDEVOURS Wine Bar event at Roanoke Vineyards on Sunday, October 19 at 2 p.m. We've sold a surprising number of tickets already, and we hadn't even announced the charity involved...until now.
I'm thrilled to tell you that we'll be donating all of the net proceeds from ticket sales and the money we raise raffling off wine to Peconic Land Trust, an important local organization that strives to protect Long Island's working farms, natural lands and heritage.
Who: You, I hope
What: LENNDEVOURS Quarterly Wine Bar
When: Sunday, October 19 from 2-5 p.m.
Where: Roanoke Vineyards (Map)
Why: To enjoy some delicious wine with great people and raise money for charity.
Tickets are $10 when purchased in advance (call 631.727.4161) or $15 at the door. That ticket gets you the opportunity to preview two unreleased wines: Roanoke Vineyard's 2005 Gabby's Field Cabernet Franc and Lieb Family Cellars' 2007 Pinot Blanc.
We'll also have Mediterranean-style food to nibble on, discounts on wines by the glass and by the bottle, raffles for Roanoke Vineyards library wines and some 'Sonis Cellars (my own label) wines too.
I plan to do some live blogging at the event and will also be recording some video as well. I can't tell you who yet, but there is also a very good chance that a prominent wine industry member (not from Long Island) will be in attendance as well.
This is just the first of what we hope will be a quarterly event. Best of all, net proceeds will go to charity each time.
Space is limited, so call 631.727.4161 today and buy your tickets today.
