Wine Week at Park Ave Autumn

Friday, September 18, 2015

So Wine Week happened and it's awesome. This was the 57th National Wine Week and I'm so glad I got to participate. What happens at Wine Week? A handful of restaurants throughout the city will host Wine Week twice a year. I went to Park Ave Autumn for Tuesday's tasting and it was excellent. We sampled 10 flights of wine and ate some incredible dishes (including but not limited to: corn gnocchi, wild mushroom lasagne, greenmarket salad). The wines we tasted on Tuesday were: Novellum Chardonnay, Red Hook Winery White Blend, Tomaresca Primitivo (Zinfandel), Ala Nera Red Blend, The Boatman Red Blend, Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon,  Tor del Colle Montepulciano, Pavi Malbec, and Napa Cellars Zinfandel.

I also just joined Club W with my roommates! We'll be educating ourselves about all things wine in the coming months. Just call me a sommelier.
