WILTON, Conn. -- The Wilton Library invites wine lovers and foodies to its sixth annual Wine Tasting Benefit and Restaurant Showcase from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday.
Participants will be able to see, swirl, sniff and sip their way through wines from around the world while enticing their palates with offerings from Barcelona SoNo, Bianco Rosso, Little Pub, Luca Ristorante, Marly’s Bar & Bistro, Oak + Almond, Portofino Restaurant & Bar and Wave Hill Breads.
New Canaan Wine Merchants is providing the wines for this fun, social gathering.
“In a winter that has been so punishing, this might be the right time for everyone to step out of hibernation and visit with their friends and neighbors again,” Robin Axness, development director for Wilton Library said in a statement.
“Guests will have delicious wines to sample, delectable hors d’oeuvres from eight local restaurants and food purveyors to savor, and this wonderful organization will benefit from it all, she added.”
Tickets for the event are $50 per person. The fundraiser is limited to 125 people so purchasing tickets in advance is recommended.
