Our event was a great success. Please join us in September for our next tasting.

A TASTING OF WINES MADE BY CHATEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD - AUGUST 30, 2005

The New York Chapter of Women for WineSense is delighted to present its first

Lopate, show host for WNYC radio, will be our special speaker and
will share his personal experience as a parent of an autistic child.
The tasting will be led by Martin Sinkoff, Director of Marketing for
Pasternak Wine Imports. Martin will discuss the wines and estates

The cube is missing!

We noticed that the Cube sculpture in Astor Place near Cooper Union was missing. After a little Googling, we found this story about it's repair and history. BTW, it's name is "The Alamo".
