Alex Elman Wine Dinner @ Onieals 7pm tonight
‘Tis the season!
Onieal’s (4th & Park) will host another excellent wine dinner tonight Wednesday, December 8 featuring Alex Elman Wines from Argentina. These wines are 100% organic, sourced from an eco-friendly winery in Mendoza, Argentina. All the wines are un-oaked, showing the best expression of the grape, very approachable and fun to drink. A four-course menu will be paired with her Torrontes, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.
A brief story about Alex Elman: A lifer of the wine industry, Alex spent her summers in France, Spain, and Brazil in her youth, working in vineyards, and upon graduation from college, began working for a prestigious importer in NYC, then opened her own importing company bringing rare and fine wine into the US in early 2000. In the 1990s, Alex lost her sight due to complications from diabetes, however, with her trusted guide dog Hanley, Alex continues to conquer the world. The label on the bottles depicts Alex in the vineyards with Hanley, matching her dress color to the varietal and each label features Braille detailing the varietal. A great story and great wine.
Tickets are $55/person plus tip and limited seating is still available. Please call (201)653-1492 for more info.
