Wine Tasting

Our latest event was a Virtual Wine Tasting, Cellar and Vineyard Tour from Macari Vineyards in Mattituck, NY on the North Fork of Long Island
Certified Sommelier and Master of Wine candidate, Gabriella Macari, Gabelli ‘09, introduced us to two of Macari Vineyards newly released wines, their 2018 Chardonnay Estate & their 2016 Dos Aguas Red.
Additionally, we went behind the scenes of the vineyard on a “virtual tour” and learned about tasting, winemaking, viticulture and the history of Macari Vineyards, a family business. More than 60 participants were thrilled to ask questions about the business, about wine and even about Gabriella’s time at Fordham. 
  • Chardonnay Estate 2018 (New Release!)
  • Dos Aguas Red 2016
Macari Vineyards made a generous donation to support the FCAA’s scholarship funds following this event. We extend sincere thanks to Gabriella and Macari Vineyards for their continued support of our organization and Fordham University.
