Thanks to the enormous success of previous Grand Tastings—and with overwhelming support from top Napa Valley vintners—this year, Gary’s Wine & Marketplace is expanding their annual fall fundraiser into a three-day event: GARY’S GRAND WINE EXPERIENCE. (Tickets & Packages Starting at $80, www.garyswine.com/gwx)
Founded in 1987, Gary’s has grown to one of the largest fine wine businesses in the United States, with four locations in New Jersey (Wayne, Madison, Bernardsville and Hillsborough) and an online store offering shipping to 37 states. The premier source of top Napa wines in the U.S, Gary’s is committed to attentive service, unparalleled selection and myriad wine & food events for the public. Innovation is one of the many reasons Gary’s was named 2014 Retailer of The Year (Market Watch Magazine) and received a 2015 Great Oak Award from New Jersey Monthly magazine for corporate social responsibility.
This year’s event offers more opportunities for food & wine lovers to explore their passion, meet top Napa vintners; taste exclusive Napa Valley wines at a symposium moderated by Karen MacNeil, author of The Wine Bible and attend wine pairing dinners with special guest vintners at New Jersey‘s top restaurants.
A bigger celebration means more chances to support beneficiaries, for whom Gary’s Wine & Marketplace has raised more than $700,000 over the company’s lifespan.
