It Was A Good Year, Inc.Mid Hudson Food and Wine Society Joint Event to Celebrate the "End of the Pandemic"! We are pleased to invite you to a special food-wine event on July 20th, 2021.This will be IWAGY's first indoor face-to-face event since February 2020, and for MHFWS the first since March of 2020! Although this can be viewed as a food-wine event, it is also a true wine tasting, with 8 wines offered and a guest speaker. The wine theme is a survey of some current trends in wine, so each wine served will be totally different from all the others.The wines will be complemented by a really awesome lineup of lighter foods prepared by Tomas Restaurant (see listing below).We'll taste wines as diverse as an organic red from Sicily and a sustainably grown Portuguese white, and be guided through this interesting assemblage of diverse wines by William Tisherman, aka "Tish". (Don't hesitate to address him in this way!) Although Tish is probably embarrassed to admit it, he's been speaking at IWAGY wine tastings since 1999. Tish has worked at the Wine Enthusiast and the industry/trade groups, Beverage Media and Seven Fifty.Currently, he leads corporate and private events for the Institute of Culinary Education through his own business "Wine For All". In light of the current pandemic situation, we are limiting participants to those vaccinated against Covid-19 and trust that members will respect that (“Honor System”). Since we will be tasting 8 wines, we will pour smaller amounts. The event will begin at 6:30PM and last until approximately 9PM. Trend-O-Licious (survey) Wine categories: -Prosecco Rosé (and you thought the Glera grape was white-skinned?) -New packaging trends - wine in a can -New fermentation trends (maybe 8,000 years old): "Quevri"-fermented white wine from Republic of Georgia (fermented with skin contact) -Organic red wine from Sicily -Uco Valley Malbec Reserva -Portuguese sustainably-grown white -And 2 others Foods:
