One of our favorite cities where you can find Labor Wines is New York City. There are so many reasons why this is the case but for me personally, I spent my childhood years growing up in New Jersey, always going to the ‘City’ for dinners, events and gatherings. Even more so, we have had the pleasure of having our wines there since the initial 2009 vintage and each month we’re getting a better presence in NYC through our distributor, RAD Grapes. When the opportunity was presented for me to host a wine dinner at Sarabeth’s Restaurant in Tribeca, I jumped at the chance!
One of my dear friends, Angela ‘Mini’ Caudle, serves as general manager and has been a very loyal supporter of Labor Wines since the beginning. She was thrilled to have us come to NYC for this occasion and visit her restaurant. In working together, we were able to pair three of our wines with 4 courses from Sarabeth’s culinary team. The evening’s menu is below, but I can tell you not only was it delicious, but the wines were a perfect pairing for each course. We were able to feature our 2011 Pinot Blanc, the 2012 Riesling and our 2011 Pinot Noir. We held the dinner on Tuesday, June 4; traditionally a quieter evening for the restaurant, but with our event, it definitely brought a buzz in that night.
The dinner was a smashing success with over 50 people attending! I had the pleasure to welcome well over 35 guests who were friends of Labor and contacts that we have known which made the evening extra special. I can’t thank enough each and every one who came out to support us on this weeknight.
The event would not have happened without the amazing guidance and support courtesy of Mini Caudle, their General Manager who is not only a fantastic industry professional, but an amazing person. I can’t thank her enough for her support for Labor Wines and dedication to what we do; allowing us to be a part of her restaurant on their wine list and host this wine dinner. In addition, her staff was fantastic; the service was impeccable and the execution by their culinary team was wonderful.
I can’t wait to return soon and hopefully host a second dinner. We will be sure to keep everyone posted well in advance.
