Join us as we pair Obscure varietals with the Inn on Broadway. Everyone knows the most popular grapes like Merlot, Cabernet, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio, but with over 10,000 grape varietals throughout the world there are bound to be some that you have yet to experience. A sample of what will be presented ~  a sparkling Moschofilero, a tropical yet dry white wine called Mataòssu, and a light-bodied, easy drinking Portugieser among others. These wines will be paired to courses expertly prepared by Executive Chef Tom Polizzi.
Our guest presenter for the evening is Carrie Morabito. Carrie has completed Level II of the WSET program at NYWCC and hopes to go on to Level III in the next few years 

Carrie is the owner of 2foodies Wine & Spirits, a liquor store located in Greece that is anything but typical. 2foodies passion is in lesser known wine producers and varietals and their specialty is pairing wine and food. Carrie, and her Chef/husband Andrew have had a love of food and wine since they met in 2004 and in 2015 opened the doors to their space to offer a wine store that is different than others you may see.
