Broadbent Wine Portfolio Tasting

** In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, and the Winter Storm soon after, we have postponed this event – to be determined in the near future – We wish everyone a safe and prosperous recovery **

Amity Wine and Spirit, Co cordially invites you to an evening with Broadbent Wines. Sample eight of their most mouthwatering wines and listen as Brie Conway leads us in conversation about each and every pour. Learn all about Bartholomew Broadbent, and how he created a company which not only produces some of the world’s most saught after wines, but does so in style.

Known as a lively, witty and informative wine lecturer, Bartholomew is also one of the world’s foremost authorities on Port and Madeira. He is credited for being responsible for the growth of Port consumption in North America during the mid 1980’s and was responsible for the re-introduction of Madeira to America in 1989, instrumental in its growth since then. Bartholomew Broadbent’s company, Broadbent Selections, Inc., founded in 1996, is the exclusive US national importer for some of the worlds most sought after family wineries, including Chateau Musar, Warwick Estate, Spy Valley, Ferreira, Quinta do Crasto, Aresti, Louis Guntrum, Montsarra Cava, Pago de Larrainzar, Vilafonte,Badenhorst, and Dr.Hermann. He also produces his own Broadbent Port, Madeira, and Vinho Verde in Portugal. He has also partnered with family owned wineries around the globe to produce his Broadbent Varietal wines including a Gruner Veltliner from Austria and a Malbec from Argentina.

Brie Conway will take you through each of the following wines, prompting you to taste, smell and see things you have probably never thought of before! This is not a night to be missed, so contact Jim Boyrer  at 203.397.9463 to reserve your spot. Spaces are limited, so RSVP today!
