KATONAH, N.Y. – The eighth annual KVIS Wine Tasting, “Then & Now,” will be held Saturday, March 14, from 7:30-10 p.m. at the Katonah Village Library, 26 Bedford Road, Katonah.
The KVIS Wine Tasting has become a rite of spring in Katonah, and this year guests will be treated to a taste of progress. The tasting will feature five decades worth of wine evolution.
“We will poke fun at some of yesteryear’s signature wines,” said KVIS organizer Bill “Tish” Tisherman, who will be tapping his experience as editor of the trade magazine Beverage Media to curate the wine selections. “But we will be pouring thoroughly modern alternatives. For example, instead of Mateus, we’ll have dry Provence rosé. And to play off the notion that Bordeaux always needed cellaring, we’ll have one that is delicious, young and biodynamic to boot.”
Twenty wines in all will be served at the casual walk-around, including “cultish cabs” from Napa, dry and sweet rieslings, Oregon pinot noir, Reserva-level rioja, moscato and malbec, and in a tribute to today's trend: a smooth red blend in a box.
The wines will be poured at three stations, with the ’60s and ’70s represented by “Peace, Love & Understanding Wine”; the ’80s and ’90s by “From Me-Me-Me to WWW”; and the 2000s-2015 will be under the banner “Plugged In, But Wireless.” Food for the evening will be a “Tasty Time Warp,” showcasing classic party snacks.
There is a $50 per person donation; order tickets online here under “donate.”
