Wine Tasting Fundraiser in Historic Devinne Press Building
Donation $75 per person
Please note limited space is available.
Join Village Preservation for an exciting and informative wine tasting at the innovative Astor Center in historic NoHo. The Center’s home in the landmarked 1886 DeVinne Press building has undergone an extensive interior and exterior renovation in recent years—a transformation that both preserved the building’s significant architectural elements while incorporating the most current green technology into the building’s fabric. The restored spaces were elegantly designed and supremely equipped as a kitchen, study, and gallery.
The tasting, offered in the Center’s state of the art study, will be led by Andy Fisher, President of Astor Wines/Astor Center. Taste a flight of fantastic French wines and come away with a solid understanding of the simple, straightforward principles of tasting wine and pairing it successfully with food. All funds raised support the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation.
GVSHP thanks Andy Fisher and the Astor Center for making this evening possible. Please visit www.astorcenternyc.com for more information about this class and Astor Center.
Astor Center is a hub of gastronomic culture whose mission is to facilitate exchange within our community of food enthusiasts: between farmers and eaters, winemakers and wine drinkers, chefs and butchers, writers and educators, novices and professionals. The Center offers seminars, tastings, pairings and hands-on culinary activities as well as private and corporate team-building and recreational events. Eat, drink, think!
