Organic and Biodynamic Wine Tasting at Hunter’s Point Wines & Spirits in LIC

If you are going to drink wine, why not drink wine that tastes good and is good for the planet? Sustainable farming techniques rely on healthy soil, not chemical fertilizers, weed killers, insecticides, and other synthetic chemicals. Come to this FREE wine tasting to learn more about what it means to be a “certified organic” or “biodynamic” wine.

WHAT: Organic and Biodynamic Wine Tasting

WHERE: Hunter’s Point Wine & Spirits, 47-07 Vernon Boulevard, LIC

WHEN: Thursday, March 20th from 6-8 pm

RSVP: Lynne Serpe at 646-202-0825 or Robyn Sklar at

Hunter’s Point Wines & Spirits is an independently owned and operated store in Long Island
City, NY. Owner Paul Huston graciously offered his store for this event. Hunter’s Point Wines & Spirits holds free wine tastings every Thursday and Friday from 6-8pm. Take the 7 train to Vernon Boulevard, walk 3.5 blocks north. Please call 718-472-WINE for more information.

The organic, biodynamic and sustainably farmed wines that will be available for tasting are from Small Vineyards, which specializes in single estate wines from all regions in Italy, customarily picked by hand and always earth-friendly. Production at the estate must be 10,000 cases or less. Guest Lorenzo Gaeteschi will be pouring a wine that he makes himself: an estate grown Merlot that he makes 300 cases of only.

Save the Date: 3R Events will hold the first annual “Queens is Green Fashion Show” on April 26 at Green Space in Long Island City, highlighting green fashion designers with a Queens connection.

Queens is Green Fashion Show

Calling All Fashion Designers, Sewers, and Crafters!

The Queens is Green Fashion Show is scheduled during the week of Earth Day to highlight clothing and accessories that not only look good, but are good for the planet.

Green Fashion isn't just clothing made with sustainable fabrics like hemp or bamboo silk, but also includes items that are handmade or refashioned from recycled or reusable products -- and we plan to highlight designs that have a Queens connection.

Local fashion designers, sewers, and crafters are invited to participate in the first Queens is Green Fashion Show. Be eligible to win a cash prize AND a feature story in the summer edition of Ins&Outs Magazine. Please send an email with the following items:

• a picture of your clothes or accessories - 3 items either sketched or finished
• a short paragraph on how your items are eco-friendly
• a short explanation on your connection with Queens, NY

Deadline to enter is March 21st (March 28th for students). If you have any questions about your eligibility, please contact Robyn Sklar at or call Lynne Serpe at 646-202-0825.
