Torres Wines Tasting 7:30 PM, Tuesday, April 12, 2022 Italian Center – 1195 Rte. 376, Wappingers Falls
Please note: We are sending this announcement early to give our members the maximum amount of time to make reservations.
We're sometimes exhorted to "dream big". This event is the result of that kind of thinking. It began with the germ of an idea, and a casual inquiry on the Familia Torres website. “Do you have a representative in the USA who may present your wines in the New York area?” After many small but successful steps, we have to say this: It's been a long time since we have had the opportunity to announce something this sensational! On April 12, 2022, we are offering a tasting of some spectacular wines from the Spanish winery Torres. The presenter will be Rob Stegall, the Familia Torres winery's area manager for Eastern USA. Torres is one of Spain's most-respected wineries, having won many accolades for both its wines and its commitments to environmental stewardship. (See https://www.torres.es/en/we-are/our-history).
The list of wines to be presented includes one of the most-storied wines of Spain, Mas la Plana (2016 vintage), a Cabernet Sauvignon from the winery's acclaimed single-vineyard site. It will be joined by 7 other extremely good and very diverse wines from both the winery's home-region of Catalonia, and from other regions of Spain. Some of these include:
Pazo das Bruxas Albariño Rias Baixas 2020 (white from Galicia) Celeste Crianza Ribera del Duero 2018 (red from Castillo Y Leon) Salmos Priorat 2017 (red from Catalonia)
This event will be held in a venue that is new (to us), The Italian Center. It's situated just off Rt. 376, technically in Wappingers, but closer, village-wise, to Hopewell Junction. The facility has been recently renovated (nicely) and its large banquet room can accommodate a crowd. Italian Center members are also invited to attend at IWAGY member's price.
As this is a non-food "regular wine tasting" event, we'll start a bit later than we have since our July 2021 tasting; this is to allow participants time to dine beforehand.
