Wines of the USA
The Guilford Keeping Society presents “Wines of the USA”, a signature fundraising event on Saturday, April 22, 2023, from 4-7PM at the Medad Stone Tavern Museum located at 171 Three Mile Course, Guilford, CT.
This event is the sixth of a series of wine tastings that highlight wines from around the world. This year’s theme will focus on wines from the United States, and in particular, highlight regions in California and the Northwest.
As a very special added attraction, GKS is proud to present Nina Wemyss, distinguished wine historian and entertaining raconteur, who will launch the event with a brief talk about the history of wine. In 2003, Nina was the featured wine historian on the History Channel’s “A Brief History of Wine”. In addition, Nina spent seventeen years as Wine Historian, Lecturer and Cultural Ambassador for Robert Mondavi Winery in Napa Valley. Come celebrate the sampling of fine wines and hors d’oeuvres at the historic Medad Tavern and enjoy the tavern and its beautiful views.
Kirsta Ifkovic, owner of Frank’s Package Store, will provide the wine selections for tasting.
A Silent Auction will highlight some of the wines.
Tickets for advanced purchase are $40 for adults, 21, or $50 at the door. One hundred tickets will be sold to provide maximum enjoyment by all. Tickets are available at Frank’s Package Store, 15 Boston Street; Sachem Card and Party, 946 Boston Post Road; and The Hartmann Group, 705 Boston Post Road; or using the Buy Now button above. Tickets purchased online will not be mailed to you, but are available at the reception table at the Tavern on the day of the event.
