All $75 payments will be collected in-advance so our chef can prepare hors d’ouvres for cocktail style reception. Drinks: the selected wines, soft drinks, juices and vodka mixed drinks.

Luksusowa Vodka & Zubrowka Vodka will complete the tour around Europe! These exceptional upscale Polish Potato base vodkas are fantastic. Luksusowa, the Polish word for “luxury, has a superior taste that is a result of its potato-base. Most domestic vodkas are distilled from corn, most imported vodkas from rye. But Luksusowa is painstakingly made from Poland’s select potato crop grown exclusively in the Baltic coast region of North Poland. It takes ten times more potatoes than it would take of grain to make Luksusowa, the preferred vodka of people who can taste and appreciate the smoother texture and richer taste.

COMPLIMENTARY GIFTBAG BY LUMENE
All attendees will receive a complimentary GIFT BAG from LUMENE – the leading European Skin Care company. Your gift bag will include Lumene’s Radiant Vitamin C + Beauty Drops and Sensitive Brown Mascaras.

Our wines will be chosen by Konstantine Drougos, who has spent many years managing Greek & other portfolios in New York’s competitive market. He has been associated with the food and wine industry since 1988, both in sales and distribution; he is considered to be an authority on Greek food and wine. Konstantine is President & Founder of Wonderful Ethnic – www.wonderfulethnic.com, one of the premier importers of wines from Greece, Brazil, and Cyprus in the US.

We would like to thank Costas Mouzouras from www.GothamWines.com – located at 94th & Bway for the re-introduction!
