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.
