Slow U: "Champagne" and Oysters

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 (7:00pm to 9:00pm)

Champagne and oysters go hand in hand. What better way to celebrate the start of summer than with a local take on this classic pairing?

Join us for a talk and tasting as you sample 4 different sparkling wines from NY state and a dozen of the freshest local oysters. Learn about how various sparkling wines are made, the m├ęthode champenoise process (how traditional Champagne is produced in France), and the characteristics of each wine. With your ticket, you'll also enjoy a dozen Bluepoint oysters harvested from local waters and have the opportunity to purchase more oysters for just $1 each!

Leonardo Manno, from Sparkling Pointe Wine in the North Fork of Long Island, and TJ Provenzano, from Brooklyn Oenology, will be leading the discussion.

Proceeds from this event support the programs of Slow Food NYC, including the Urban Harvest program of good food education for NYC kids at schools in the South Bronx, Harlem, Lower East Side, and Brooklyn, as well as a summer urban farm in Brooklyn.
