International Wine Or Whiskey Tasting For 10

No passport needed for this wine or whiskey tasting tour in the comfort of your own home.

You are welcome to come in person and browse our temperature controlled wine room as you help pick the wines from among the over 1000 in our extensive international collection!

Corporate Wine Tastings

Law firms, investment banks, marketing firms, financial institutions, sports agents, advertising agencies – are few organizations for which wine tastings can be an innovative marketing, networking and educational tool. Tastings can be used to reward A-list clients, celebrate the signing of an important contract, to entertain partners, doctors, to entice prospects, and educate and inspire young associates.

Personal and Group Wine Tastings

Are you looking for an exciting new idea for a gathering of friends or family? Plan a wine tasting! Everyone wants to learn more about wine. A tasting can be structured as a sit down event, in which enjoyment and education go hand-in-hand, or as a stand up walk around event that lends itself to more casual interaction.

Tony & Andrea love to give back to the Westchester community, which they are an integral part of.

Here is a small list of fundraiser and charitable events that we have participated in recent past:

  • CLUSTER provides services and programs that assist residents in Yonkers and Westchester and Rockland County to build a better future for themselves and their communities. The focus of all the programs is the empowerment of individuals, families and communities to fulfill their dreams and potential.

  • The Pleasantville Rotary Club, established in 1929, is one of the older clubs in the area and is comprised of men and women representing local community businesses, professionals and occupations. It is a member of Rotary District, which encompasses Westchester County, Manhattan, the Bronx, Staten Island, and Bermuda. Each year it organizes fundraising events to benefit many local projects and organizations. Among these other activities, the Rotary Club of Pleasantville sponsors and runs a pancake breakfast each fall as well as the Westchester Wine Experience each spring.
  • Since 1957, the YAI Network has been providing hope and opportunity to people of all ages with developmental disabilities and their families. Our organization includes more than 450 programs and serves more than 20,000 people every day.
