I spent my day today at an amazing event. Eric Trump (yes, The Donald’s son) has a wonderful charitable organization that throws an event at the Westchester, NY based Trump International Golf Course to raise money for St Jude’s Childrens Charity. I was invited several weeks ago to sponsor a hole & pour wine at the event.

I’m very proud to say that Hole # 10 was sponsored by the Wine Tasting Guy. Not only that, but they set up a wine tasting table for me (and a fabulous industry collegue from “Bacchus – Wine Made Simple”) right on the 10th hole. We poured some amazing wines from Israel and California and the guests LOVED THE WINES. The golf tournament went well for the golfers and there was a reception that followed where we poured more wine. It was a successful event and I was very excited to hear the positive feedback and be invited back next year. Among the many highlights of the day was when Ivanka Trump came by, tried, and LOVED an Israeli Syrah we were pouring. Sadly I missed her at the end of the event but I sent Eric with a bottle of the Syrah for her.
On a sadder note I am about to bring up a political issue. I try very hard to stay away from said issues on this site for a multitude of reasons. But this one is important enough for me to briefly mention. This coming Monday Iran’s President Ahmadinejad is coming to the U.N. and there is a “Rally to Stop Iran. The information can be found in the following flyer. I will be there and hope that anyone within driving distance of NYC understands how serious this evil man is about his intentions to “wipe Israel from the map” and will put the effort in to attend the rally.
Happy PEACEful rally golf tournament wine tasting!
