Greek wine tasting hosted by

December 11, 2009

The Boutari family was thrilled to take part in one of the first Cork’d ( live tastings, on Wednesday evening, December 9, at the Roger Smith Hotel in Midtown Manhattan, New York. If you haven’t check out Cork’d yet, it’s Gary Vaynerchuk’s new social media site for wine, where you can share tasting notes, become friends with “drinking buddies,” and network and schmooze with all sort of people from all walks of the wine industry — from consumer to expert taster.

Twenty lucky tasters who answered Gary Vaynerchuk’s personal invitation (via Twitter) joined us for a tasting of 3 Boutari wines.

Thanks to all the great tasters for coming out to taste and thanks to Lindsay Ronga and Jon Troutman for organizing!
