Zachys’ Valentine's Day Rosé Sale and Tasting

ZachysValentines'Tis the season for love, and what better way to surprise that special someone than with a spectacular bottle of rosé?! Join us Saturday, February 10th, from 12pm-4pm when we will be featuring a couple whose love and passion for wine, and each other, have led them to be the industry leaders in sparkling wines from California. In 1965, Jamie and Jack Davies purchased the once abandoned Schramsberg estate and set forth to "produce America's first méthode champenoise sparkling wines, using the noble grapes of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the classic, old-world tradition." With the aid of the famed Mondavi brothers, Peter and Robert, as well as Louis Martini winemaker, Andre Tchelistcheff, the Davies have become the gold standard for sparkling wines in the United States. "Each vineyard [is] vinified separately to create small, individual lots of base wine, then painstakingly selected and handcrafted into America's artisan sparkling wines."
In addition to these spectacular sparklers, starting February 9th through February 14th, we will be offering some special sales on our favorite rosés as well as 20% OFF all of our rosés not already on sale!

Not Your Kids Book Club for Adults To Discuss "Akata Witch"

Not Your Kids Book Club for Adults, the monthly session for adults interested in what young adults are reading, will discuss Akata Witch" by Nnedi Okorafor on Wednesday, Feb. 14, at 1 p.m., at the Scarsdale Public Library.

The novel is the story of a twelve-year-old American Albino living in Nigeria who is a terrific athlete but can't play soccer in the sun. There seems to be no place where she fits in. However, she discovers something amazing—she is a "free agent" with latent magical power. Soon she's part of a quartet of magic students, studying the visible and invisible, learning to change reality as they are asked to catch a career criminal who also knows magic.

Not Your Kids Book Club for Adults is led by Scarsdale resident Sheela Chari, whose debut children's novel, VANISHED, was a 2012 APALA Children's Literature honor book, an Edgar Award nominee for best juvenile mystery and was featured on the Today show with Al's Book Club for Kids.

To register and reserve a copy of the book go to the library website, or call the Reference Desk at (914) 722-1302.

The group will meet again on March 14 to discuss "Jane Unlimited" by Kristen Cashore.

Complimentary Tasting at Zachys: Wines for all Weathers

NothingCanStopZachys 500x5001Near 60-degree days, frigid nights, sunshine, rain, sleet, snow - and that's only the forecast through Sunday!

With that many changes in weather over the next few days, how can you possibly decide what to drink? Join us Saturday, February 17th from 12 to 4pm, and let us help you make sense of this ludicrous forecast. For the warmth and the sun, we have Saint Clair's Origin New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, which, in our opinion, is one of the most interesting New Zealand wines we have tasted lately. Though it still has the typical tropical fruit and gooseberry notes, this wine is beautifully balanced by minerality and salinity that also add an unexpected complexity for the region.

For those moderate days, we will be featuring the wonderful Talbott Logan Vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, which both over-produce for their value and pair brilliantly with almost any dish you throw at them.

Lastly, for the foggiest, slushiest and snowiest of days, we will have the Scotches from Isle of Jura. On this tiny Scottish Isle, where the deer outnumber the people nearly 25 to 1, there is only one distillery and they have been crafting some of the most complex, diverse, price-driven scotches available in the market. Unlike other regions in Scotland, the Isle of Jura does not adhere to a single style but embraces a variety of peated and unpeated Scotches that are perfect for any palate.

Zachys' Festa d'Italia 2018

Festa-ItaliaWhat's the story behind Zachys "Italian Perfect Storm" and why is coming to Scarsdale on March 3rd a must?

On Friday, March 2nd there is a big industry tasting in NYC for all the Gambero Rosso TRE BICCHIERI winners, and on the following Tuesday will be James Suckling's "Great Wines Of Italy" down at the IAC Building. As a result, we knew there would be a lot of amazing producers in town. We asked ourselves, "What if we could get 15 of them to come up for a ridiculous tasting at Zachys?"

We did better than that... we got 18!!!

Besides getting 18 A-level producers, we have convinced most of them to airship in their hot new releases scheduled to hit the market later this year. So not only will you get to meet/greet/taste with these producers, you'll among be some of the FIRST IN AMERICA to taste hot new releases like (2015 Sassicaia, 2015 Guado Al Tasso, 2015 Saffredi, 2015 Testamatta, 2015 Flaccianello...and many more!!) on a complimentary basis. We also recruited an amazing Italian charcuterie company, Levoni, who will be slicing fresh Prosciutto di Parma (YUM!); as well as the Consorzio del Parmigiano Reggiano to get us a nice big wheel of Parmigiano for the tasting.

Zachys' Festa d'Italia 2018
Saturday March 3rd, 4:00pm - 7:00pm

This is a day you won't want to miss at the store! I can honestly say that this is quite possibly....No, it's DEFINITELY...the most off-the-hook Italian tasting I have ever done at the store. At any other event you might pay a hefty price for admission but at Zachys these are complimentary but registration for this event is a MUST.

League to Celebrate 100 Years of Women's Suffrage

The League of Women Voters of Westchester (LWVW) is hosting a celebratory fundraiser to mark 100 years of women's suffrage in New York State, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Sunday, March 4 at 65 Church Lane in Scarsdale. Brooke Kroeger, author of The Suffragents, will tell the untold story of how a group of prominent and influential men came together to help women win the right to vote.

New York State voters approved women's right to vote on November 17, 1917, three years before the ratification of the 19th Amendment that approved women's suffrage on the federal level. In 1917: When Women Won the Right to Vote, NY Times correspondent, Tessa Melvin wrote that, "Nowhere was the effort to gain the right to the state vote more intense than in Westchester County... At its height, the suffragette movement in the county enrolled 20,000 women and included 102 suffragette clubs, according to material in the files of the Westchester County Historical Society." Every Westchester town voted in favor of the referendum. Women organizers included New Rochelle's Carrie Chapman Catt, founder of the Woman's Suffrage Party, which later became the New York State League of Women Voters. (Note that Ms. Melvin's article misspelled Marion Sinek's name (Finek) and that they were suffragists not suffragettes.)

"The history of women's suffrage and the LWVW is deeply intertwined," says LWVW P
Brooke Kroeger

Author Brooke Kroeger
resident Marylou Green. "Since 1919, our dedicated volunteers have been providing the public with factual, nonpartisan information about our government and elected officials. We produce voting guides for elections throughout the county, strive to elicit specific opinions and proposals from candidates rather than marketing soundbites, and monitor the workings of Westchester government and the Westchester Board of Elections. Many of us know the story of the suffragists in New York and the nation, but have not heard about the essential support they received from influential men who organized for the movement. It's time to celebrate them also."

Champagne, wine, hot hors d'oeuvres, finger food, and desserts will be served at this festive event. Tickets are $75 each. Payment can be made online via credit card or PayPal at or by mailing a check, payable to LWVW Inc., to 570 Taxter Road, Suite 565, Elmsford, New York 10523.
