SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Wine lovers can sip and give back at Vintology Wine & Spirits’ Grand Tasting to benefit Autism Speaks on Saturday, Nov. 8.
The Grand Tasting to Benefit Autism Speaks will take place from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., at Vintology at 2 Palmer Ave., Scarsdale
Vintology has been a part of the Westchester community for six years and holds their Grand Tasting of more than 20 wines seasonally. This time the event will bring awareness to autism and support to Autism Speaks, and a portion of the event sales will go directly to the organization.
“Vintology has always supported the betterment of our community,” said owner Dean Morretta. “When we realized that so many friends and families here in Westchester were living with autism we wanted to lend our support and understanding.
The Grand Tasting, which is complimentary and open to all, presents over twenty wines hand picked by Morretta and importer Adrian Chiota of Esprit du Vin. Red, whites and sparkling wines will be open. The tasting features famous wine producers like La Jota, Cenyth and Mt. Brave.
“Our customers can literally help others with each sip,” manager Elizabeth Miller said. “It’s the ultimate win if our customer’s love of wine can translate into real funding for an important organization’s work for individuals with autism and their families.”
Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism. Since then, Autism Speaks has grown into the world's leading autism science and advocacy organization. Proceeds from the Grand Tasting will help increase awareness and fund research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism.
The event is complimentary and open to the public.
