The “Wines of the World” event, sponsored by Montclair Radiology Associates, will feature over 200 wines from around the globe, including Europe, the Americas, Australia and New Zealand.
In addition, premium liquors, brandies, cognacs, single malt Scotches, whiskeys and craft beers will also be available for sampling. An extensive array of hors d’oeuvres and international foods will be served. The event will also feature a silent auction and music.
“We’re quite fortunate to have had great success with the Wines of the World event over the years, but this event is going to be special,” said Dawn Jones, Executive Vice President of the Chilton Hospital Foundation. “This is our first wine tasting fundraiser that will be held at the scenic Preakness Hills Country Club. In addition, our exclusive VIP Experience offers a lecture with fine wine expert Aldo Rafanelli from Ste. Michelle, the U.S. importer of Antinori Wines. The VIP Experience is limited to 50 participants and allows sampling of fine wines not offered to the general admission.”
