Wine Tasting Event in Ho Ho Kus 2/26, A Great Success!

Hosted by Waldwick Community Alliance and Maratene’s fine wine and spirits, this event is sure to be a great time for all wine lovers, foodies, and even homebodies who just enjoy a night out every once in a while.  I’ll be showing the intriguing wines of Bodega Carmine Granata, and look forward to meeting new people, talking about wine!

Over 100 wines will be available for you to try. And for $45, this is a great opportunity to find out your favorite styles before buying. What a deal!  Just make sure someone is being responsible-ible!


The event went very well! I showed up just a few minutes before it began with wine in hand ready to pour… I should’ve had more. People were coming back for the 2008 Carmine Granata Malbec and 2009 Carmine Granata Semillon. It’s good to know I have some excellent wines that are in high demand, I just hope I can keep the supply ;-).

I’m not really sure who won the Mercedes or the other prizes that were being raffled off, but I know that many people had a great chance to try some really nice wines and spend some money for a good cause… I know because I made sure to go around to the other tables.

One of my favorite wines of the night was an interesting Italian wine(of course) called Librandi Duca San Felice Ciro, and the No. 8 Pinot Noir was not bad at all!
