By Lenn Thompson, Executive Editor
This Sunday, October 16 at 2 p.m., Bedell Cellars will host wine educator, wine author, and recent 2011 James Beard Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award Winner, Kevin Zraly for a talk and tasting.
Zraly will offer his perspective on the wine industry after 40 years working in it, focusing on how far the United States has come in wine -- of course discussing Long Island in particular.
A Q&A and book signing opportunity with Zraly’s newest release Complete Wine Course 2012 Edition will follow. Books will be available for purchase ($27.95). Each guest for the lecture will be provided with a tasting glass of 2008 Bedell Cellars Musée and 2009 Gallery wines to accompany the lecture.
This is a free event and a great opportunity to meet and talk to one of the most prolific and important wine educators in America.
A previous edition of his Complete Wine Course was one of the first wine books I ever read when I was younger. It provides a great overview.
