Natural Wine: A Salon

Our first "salon" focuses on Natural Wine, a topic that is both incredibly hot and invariably misunderstood. Organic... sustainably farmed... Biodynamic... What makes a wine "green," and how should it taste?

Join us for a tasting and panel discussion. On tap: more than a dozen delicious and worthy-of-the-“natural”-tag wines from around the planet, served tableside along with platters of artisan cheeses, charcuterie and bread. Sip, nibble, discuss, repeat.

Our panelists:

  • Alice Feiring, author of forthcoming Naked Wine
  • Barbara Shinn, Shinn Estate Vineyards
  • Pascaline Lepeltier, Rouge Tomate
  • Christy Frank, Frankly Wines
  • Jeff Weissler, ConsciousWine.com
  • moderated by W. R. Tish, New York Wine Salon
