Women are breaking grounds in the field of wine. History will tell you wine is a gentleman’s game, but truth is ladies have played an important part all along. Cheesemaking was once part of daily life, as a way to preserve milk. Some of today's best cheesemakers are women, experimenting with technique and tradition.
Join us in celebration of Women’s History Month for a special Women in Wine & Cheese tasting cruise aboard the luxury Yacht Manhattan highlighting some of the top female movers and shakers in the industry. While cruising around the Hudson, guests will enjoy the beauty of NYC as they sip through five wines from boutique producers paired perfectly with a selection of five farmstead and artisan cheeses all made by women in the industry.
Led by Executive Chef and resident wine & cheese expert Wendy Crispell, the interactive tasting will include lively discussion and commentary about each wine, cheese and their unique origins while hearing the stories behind the passion of each wine and cheese producer. In addition, guests will learn tips on what foods to pair with each wine or cheese and recipe ideas.
