European Wine Council's Grand European Wine Tasting

"Now what were two nice men from Tennessee doing pouring German wine to strangers in Times Square," you might ask? Well, if it was William Bossert, VP-NA and Steve Farmer, Dir. of Sales, of Baden Wines International (www.badenwines.com), and you were at the European Wine Council's Grand European Wine Tasting at the Marriott Marquis on Tuesday, March 9th, then you'd know precisely why they were doing such a civilized action. The tasting, on March 9th, was a chance for buyers to sample wines, champagnes and cognacs for distribution and purchase. I visited the lunchtime affair to meet Susan Balasny, President of Bacchus Imports and Kevin Greaney to discuss their networking WineRave fundraiser on March 25th. New media art group Gen Art also will be taking part in this affair -- Anne Yoakam and I were also researching which ones we hope to share with you at an upcoming Cocktails with Courtney...The Loire Valley Meets Silicon Alley.
