Wine Tasting

Explore the World of California Wine & Cheese
with Put the PUB in Public Garden

Summit, NJ Few pairings in the culinary world are more decadent than wine and cheese. Join us at California Dreamin', the spring Put the PUB in Public Garden event hosted by Reeves-
Reed Arboretum, for an exploration of this delicious kinship between Duckhorn Vineyards and a curated selection of California cheeses.

Taken on their own, these wines will please even the most discerning of palates. But wine and cheese complement each other perfectly. They are natural partners that give you the chance to discover their subtle and sublime harmonies – bringing out the best in both.

The Duckhorn Portfolio helped set the standard for American fine wine for more than four decades. Founded with the launch of Duckhorn Vineyards in 1976, the Duckhorn portfolio has evolved to include eight wineries, each with its own dedicated winemaker and focused winegrowing program from which to make terroir-driven wines yielding "a sumptuous hedonistic expression of the grape." A featured selection for this special tasting will be the award-winning Decoy 2018 Rosé, specifically harvested to preserve the wine's beautiful aromatics, pure fruit flavors and crisp mouthfeel – a perfect garden party selection!

Joyce Stivalo, the Cheese Team Lead at Kings Food Market of Short Hills, a frequent RRA partner, will carefully choose a selection of cheeses from the "California Cheese Trail" to match perfectly with the wines.

Put the 'PUB' in Public Garden is a fundraiser for the Reeves-Reed Arboretum. Admission to the evening's flavorful festivities is $50 per person for current RRA members; $65 for non-members.
