Wine Seduction with Alessandra Rotondi


Sommelier Alessandra Rotondi knows that wine is passion. Having grown up in Italy, where wine plays an integral role in daily life, Alessandra sees wine as much more than just something to drink. She understands that wine is a tool of seduction, a way to define and enhance our social relationships.

 

If you’d like to experience wine in a new and exciting way, we invite you to join Alessandra for a very special evening of Wine Seduction. Yes, you’ll learn all the basics of wine tasting from a top sommelier, but you’ll also discover how wine can be used to enlarge your social circle, build business relationships, and spark friendship, romance, sensuality and passion.

 

Your wine journey with Alessandra will take place at a specially chosen restaurant in NYC. You’ll savor four glasses of wine - sparkling, white, red and dessert - and Alessandra will show you how to use each wine to create a special atmosphere. Like a courtship, timing is everything and you’ll learn why a sparkling wine is a good way to break the ice with someone, and how white and red wines lead progressively towards intimacy. Your wine tasting will be paired with delicious light accompaniments. 

 

Join Alessandra for this very unique approach to wine appreciation and become a wine seduction expert in just one night!
