Winter Festival Tasting at Zachys

zachyswinterfestivalFriday, December 1 ˑ 4:00pm - 7:00pm
Winter Festival Tasting

Join Zachys for a delightful tasting through the European countryside! They will be featuring selections from France, Italy and Portugal.

France:
Though famous for their value-driven village level wines, Louis Jadot produces amazing Premier and Grand Cru wines, to boot. We will be sampling a wide variety of Beaujolais and Burgundies just to give you a taste of all that Jadot is capable of. The range offered by the terroir of Burgundy is what makes the reds and whites so versatile when it comes to food pairing during the holiday season. Let Zachys give you a tour and open your eyes to some heavenly combinations.

Italy:
Looking for something heavier and richer to cozy up to? Come and taste two top sellers: Sette Ponti's Crognolo and Tenuta San Guido's Guidalberto. The 2015 Guidalberto originally received a 94-point rating from James Suckling, which he has since been upgraded to a 95, dubbing the wine "Fantastic" and "Best ever." This delightful Tuscan blend is a steal.

Portugal:
In 1692 an English merchant by the name of Job Bearsley founded a wine business in Portugal; 325 years later this little company has grown up to become the internationally acclaimed Taylor Fladgate. Port is often overlooked as many people think it's just an after dinner drink. Give Port another chance as its sweetness pairs magically with a salty cheese like Brie or Stilton; opposites truly do attract!

Join Zachys Saturday, December 2 from 12 to 4pm to taste some delightful wines that are sure get you in the holiday spirit! They will be featuring Trimbach's Riesling, which will redefine your preconceived notions of Riesling as it is light on its feet with bright acidity, minerality and a clean dry finish. For our Burgundy fans, Zachys has Henri Darnat's rouge and blanc, which show that there are still amazing values in the region that truly exemplify the notion of terroir-driven wines. Last but certainly not least, you must try the Rollan de By from Jean Guyon, who is a personal friend of Zachys from the Médoc region. Year after year, Guyon proudly produces some of the finest wines of the region at great prices and his 2011 is drinking beautifully right now.

Habitat for Humanity Westchester works toward creating a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Through shelter, Habitat for Humanity empowers people to build a better future for themselves and their families.

In Westchester County since 1988, Habitat for Humanity brings together people from all walks of life to help with house building projects, in partnership with families in need. Through this collaboration, Habitat for Humanity has introduced people from more privileged backgrounds to the housing crisis that exits in or near their own communities. While joining together to eliminate local poverty and homelessness, and to make decent, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and public action, Habitat for Humanity volunteers have become active and vocal advocates for policies that support poverty elimination and affordable housing.
Habitat for Humanity houses are affordable for local low-income families because there is no profit built into the sale price and no interest charged on the mortgage. Habitat for Humanity acquires properties in various ways and works closely with local municipalities. In this way, the local municipality buys into the process of creating and maintaining affordable housing in its community.

Habitat for Humanity Westchester also supports healthy Green initiatives in construction and operates resale shops that keep donated furniture and housewares out of landfills, for families to use.

Environmentalist to Speak on Effects of Pesticide Use on Lawns

Patricia (Patti) Wood, a leading expert on the environment and related health issues, will address Forum members at their meeting on Thursday, December 14, 2017 in the Scott Room at the Scarsdale Library. Refreshments will be available at 7:30 pm and the meeting will begin at 8:00 pm. The program is open to the public..

Ms. Wood's presentation will focus on health concerns raised by the significant and growing use of pesticides by homeowners and landscapers in their quest for the "perfect" lawn. A growing body of science has linked exposure to these chemical toxins with a myriad of serious human health problems, harm to wildlife and their habitats and the degradation of our water supplies. As Ms. Wood will explain, pesticide-free, natural lawns are living ecosystems, capable of sequestering carbon in their biomass, recharging and filtering rainwater and pollutants, and cooling ambient temperatures. Advances in soil science and natural lawn care product development in the past few years can produce that weed-free, dense lush turf that can satisfy even the most ardent lover of lawns.

Ms. Wood is a founder and executive director of Grassroots Environmental Education, a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about the relationship between environmental exposures and human health risks. Grassroots serves local and state governments, health care providers, school systems, community groups and other environmental groups and individuals nationwide.

She is the author of two books on health-related environmental issues The ChildSafe School and Helping to Heal; was a co-producer of Our Children at Risk, a thirty minute documentary film which explores the latest scientific research linking environmental toxins to children's health issues, and The BabySafe Project, a program designed to educate pregnant women about the potential risk to the developing fetus from exposures to wireless radiation; and was the co-creator of the web-based initiative, www.howgreenismytown.org which addresses climate change, sustainability and environmental health on a local level. Ms. Woods has received numerous awards from government entities and private organizations for her work on these issues.

A Visiting Scholar at Adelphi University, Ms. Wood lectures on the environment and related health issues in the College of Nursing and Public Health. Ms. Wood is also a guest lecturer at SUNY Stony Brook, Pace University and Hostos Community College.

Commenting on Ms. Wood's planned program Darlene Lefrancois-Haber Co-Chair, along with Michelle Sterling, of the Forum's Sustainability Committee, said "We are delighted that Patti Wood is bringing her expertise to the Forum. We look forward to the opportunity to learn from a leading proponent of environmentally healthy living and hope to see many of our members and others from our community at the presentation on December 14th."

Bourbon and Cognac Tasting at Zachys

jefferson-prunier-150x150Friday, December 15 ˑ 4:00pm - 7:00pm
Jefferson's Bourbon and Prunier Cognac

Jefferson's was founded in 1997 by Trey Zoeller and his father Chet. These two come from a long line of whiskey purveyors dating back eight generations to Trey's great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother, who was arrested in 1799 for the "production and sales of spirituous liquors." While an amazing story, it is not what makes their products unique. Trey and Chet have always strived to push the boundaries of "bourbon," in order to create something truly unique while still honoring tradition. Their special cask finishes have included finishing barrels from Château Suduiraut and Château Pichon Baron of Bordeaux as well as Groth and Pritchard Hill of Napa, and they have truly broadened the horizon of the typical bourbon drinker and caught the attention of many wine savants as well, such as your friends at Zachys.

Prunier began as a Cognac trading company in the 1700s, focusing on bottling and transportation for other companies. A century later the family established a base in the region of Cognac and began to source their own eaux-de-vie directly from growers and distillers. Prunier's classical style is passed down orally from generation to generation in order to preserve their "Old House, Old Cognac" style. Fifth generation, Stephane Burnez has spent the last 25 years painstakingly smelling and sampling each barrel and demijohn to ensure that his family legacy survives the test of time.
