Wine:Look at the Legs

Greetings Hamptons MouthPiece Readers….Yesterday, March 10th I had the pleasure to do something that I have never done before and WHOW was it a wonderful experience. My friend Sharon and I took the Ferry from Shelter Island yesterday over to the North Fork and visited Water’s Crest in Cutchogue, NY. When we arrived we were greeted and asked if we would like to have a wine tasting while we waited for everyone to arrive for our Wine Blending event. The answer to that was an absolute YES….since I was the designated driver for the day, my tastings were limited but Sharon was free to enjoy herself. We started with the 2009 Reserve Chardonnay, I am not a fan of Chardonnay but I did like this wine, it was light and fruity and one that I would enjoy drinking. Our 2nd tasting was the New Release “2010 Campania Bianco another Chardonnay, Sharon loved this one, I however preferred the 1st one, it felt a little heavy for me and I like wines that are very light. Our last tasting with the White Wines was the 2010 Dry Riesling…this was my favorite of the 3 and I loved it. It was perfect for me and I am told that it is a perfect pairing with spicy food…

It was then time for the event and so we were walked to the back where we each were seated next to our partners and we worked in groups. We were given 3 reds that we would be blending.

  • 2008 Merlot
  • 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin(cs)
  • 2007 Cabernet Franc Grand Vin(cf)
James Waters the owner and the Wine Maker was the host for the day and we were given a lesson on blending and an overall history of Water’s Crest. Although Water’s crest makes several delicious wines on the East End in Long Island you might be surprised to learn that they do not have a vineyard, they purchase their grapes from another Vineyard who grows grapes in LI and they then make the wine on the premises. We were taught about our Palet’s…how to taste the wine, what we should be tasting, why wine-makers blend wines. Wine makers blend wines for several reasons, from enhancing the aroma -to adjusting the sweetness of the wine.
It was time for us to start blending our wine and that was both educational and a lot of fun. I was not sure how I was going to do on my first try because I do not really care for Merlot. Merlot being the prominent wine I had to come up with a formula that would give me the smooth mellow taste that I enjoy… WHAM I did it…I blended a wine that was so delicious for my taste and Jim(the owner) tasted it and liked it as well. Here was my formula:
**Merlot*CF*CS 
(now you didn’t think I was going to give you the percentages)
Look at the Legsnot referring to Larry Rivers sculpture that graces the outside Residence of a home in Sag Harbor.….
Fun Fact: When you swirl a glass of wine and look at how it runs down the glass, you’re looking at the legs. Look at the ring of wine near the top of the glass and how the droplets form and run back down into the wine. These are the legs. I am told they usually occur in high alcohol wines and you’ll see the link between alcohol and wine legs shortly.
Sharon after several tastings finally got her blend where she wanted it to be…you will see in the video I posted her various attempts and her perfect saying for the day..“I don’t believe in wasting”
We were all given our very own personal blend to take home with us and before we left Jim let us each sample a Special blend that will not be ready until 2014..It is still sitting in the barrel until Mid-summer and afterwards will sit in the warehouse until 2014…It was delicious…I am told it will retail for $50 a bottle.
We ended our day at Water’s Crest and the cost for such a wonderful afternoon was only $30. What a find and a definite cool thing to do on a Saturday afternoon in March. Sharon and I left and stopped over at Sparkling Pointe that was literally 2 minutes away. This place is absolutely beautiful and for you Sparkling Wine fans they only have sparkling wine…They are also the recipient of the Jazz on the Vine, LI Winterfest Closing event on March 18th at 330pm…well worth a visit.
There is another opportunity to take this class but hurry class is filling up quickly…
Saturday, March 17th**2-4pm, $30pp**create your own Wine Blend on Saturday, March 10th or March 17th from 2-4pm, for a truly unique experience.  You will have a one of a kind opportunity to create your very own 375ml bottle.  The cost is $30 per person which includes an artisanal cheese plate to pair with the currently released Waters Crest Red Wine flight.
Space is limited to the first 30 people to respond per event date. RSVP required to Waters Crest. 631-734-5065

There is one weeked left for the LI Wine Fest, might be worth a drive From NYC, The Hamptons or Western LI and even NJ…..For more information about Water’s Crest…click here and for more information and the schedule for the Jazz on the Vine www.liwinterfest.com..Well that was my experience and as always, Hamptons MouthPiece keeping you in the know!

photo-1Greetings Hamptons MouthPiece Readers....It’s the 2nd Annual HARBORFROST weekend in Sag Harbor, whose ready to get your freeze on for the Polar Bear Plunge? I meet people all the time that say to me you live in the Hamptons full-time and I say of course people live here year-round. What’s not to believe, I remember when I use to only come out on the weekends year-round and dread going back to NYC to live my everyday life. The Hamptons are very quiet in the off-season, but it is charming and peaceful.  As a younger person I would not have been able to appreciate Sag Harbor as a year-round resident, but I can now and it is one of the most beautiful places in the world to live. I get to drive past the ocean everyday and my personal best is driving over the bridge in Sag Harbor, it has the most beautiful sunrise that just takes my breathe away. So you out there that thinks we shrivel away and hibernate in the winter, the Hamptons does not close up after Labor Day..we work, we party, we go out to eat at Restaurants that stay open year-round, we shop, Eli Tahari is open year-round, our kids go to school, BTW we are home to some of the best public schools in NYS. Sag Harbor is one of the most charming towns of which can be enjoyed all year long, take a break if you live in NYC and visit for the day or weekend.
HARBORFROST WEEKEND ACTIVITIES:
Celebration Kicks off on Friday night The Friends of Yard will be hosting a Winter Celebration Party. **Date: Friday, 2/10/12 
Time: 7pm-11pm

Tickets can be purchased at The Wharf Shop & Sag Harbor Liquors.$30 at the door.

The Friends of Yard will be hosting a Winter Celebration Party at Page 63 on Main Street. There will be a silent auction, dinner by the bite donated by local restaurants and a DJ playing music. The cost is $25.00 in advance & $30 at the door.

YARD is a vital component of our community because it provides positive activities for Sag Harbor’s youth. However, YARD is mostly funded by municipalities which have cut back their funding due to these tough economic times. Now, more than ever, we rely on the generosity of the community to help keep these critical programs intact. According to Debbie Skinner – director of the YARD program, “There’s no better way to kick-off Harborfrost weekend then to attend our gala and support the children of Sag Harbor.”
YARD is a non-profit organization that provides programs and activities designed to keep our community’s kids active, occupied, and engaged. These programs include YARD’s after school program and the wildly popular summer evening program.

New Year’s Eve 2011 in the Hamptons
Happy New Year Hamptons MouthPiece Readers it has been awhile since I last communicated with you and for that I apologize. Since we last spoke I have moved and I am finally settled in my new home with a work space to be creative. I am excited for 2012 and the new and amazing plans I have in-store for you my readers. As you know the creation of Hamptons Mouthpiece was to tell you things you may not be aware of in the Hamptons. Although there are many events, businesses , products, news, entertainment, Real Estate, Food and etc… that take place beyond the Hamptons, the primary focus of this blog is All about the Hamptons all the time and only 10% of what happens beyond the Hamptons. I welcome you my readers to add anything to my Facebook Page www.facebook.com/hamptonsmouthpieceand I will pull information to add to my blog.

This is New Year’s Eve weekend and there is much to do in the Hamptons. I will be unable to attend any of these fun events as I have a black tie event to attend on Friday night in NYC and Saturday night I am hosting a New Year’s Eve party as a favor to a friend. I have put together a list of events if you are visiting and interested in bringing in the New Year in the Hamptons or if you live here and would like to go out. Now you can’t possibly plan on going out without a perfect look…
photo(4)Check out this hot little number at Aimee’s Closet in Montauk that will make a statement…I am considering driving out to Montauk to pick up one for myself because it is both fun and sexy at the same time and anyone who knows me knows that I will be dressing sexy until the day I die…

khl_7418ITS A SPOOKY HALLOWEEN IN THE HAMPTONS..Greetings Hamptons MouthPiece readers…sorry it’s been a week since I last posted, so much is happening in my life that has me running all over the place and therefore it has been difficult to focus on writing something worth reading. .I must admit I love looking at the Village annual Halloween outrageous parade (see last years pictures)..  ..I would prefer staying in the Hamptons however, there is a wonderful vibe and I feel safe….I really love this small town I live in especially during Halloween, it reminds us all the joy of being a kid. I love how all of the the stores and the homeowners really get into the Halloween spirit and the hundreds of kids that come knocking on your door to get that favorite piece of candy. My favorite candy has always been snickers and each year I take out all of the snickers bars and feast…I know, I know I should not, but I cannot help myself I am freakin addicted to the snickers bar….So this is the 1st year that I will not be walking down Main Street in Sag Harbor on Halloween with Allura, she has Field Hockey practice and therefore no Main street, but don’t feel so bad for her yet because we will be going to East Hampton I hope. I say I hope because she is a Pre-teen and therefore the plans are not set until 15 minutes before they are to begin. Ahhh the joy of being a teen with no worries…I love trick-o-treating in East Hampton because many of the homes are decorated and the inner child has emerged from many of these adults. I love to see so many children all dressed up and the joy that you see on their face as you open the door with a bowl full of candy. I do feel for those who have no candy and hide in their homes afraid to answer the doors because children can be merciless when you hold out on the Candy on Halloween….SO BUSINESSES ON MAIN STREET TAKE A HINT AND MAKE SURE YOU OPEN YOUR DOORS AND WELCOME ALL OF THE CHILDREN…..DO NOT RUN OUT OF CANDY…Apples and Raisins are not a winner with kids… So with that being said, lets take a sneak peak at what’s happening this Halloween Weekend in the Hamptons…

Hamptons MouthPiece…It is Labor Day Weekend in the Hamptons…Well Friends it is here already the last official weekend of summer in the Hamptons…It will be a beautiful sunny day in the Hamptons today…This summer in particular went so quickly, I blinked and I was driving Danielle to college….This has certainly been an exciting summer and an adventurous one to say the least…

We rushed home to beat what was thought to be a hurricane but instead was a very strong Tropical Storm….We were prepared for no electricity….we braced ourselves and waited it out…pleased to say we had minimum damage but most importantly we were alive and well and that is all that is important. Many people were complaining that they did not have electricity for many days but many people in New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont and upstate New York lost their homes and their life savings due to extreme floodings so keeping things in prospective is vitally important.We dropped our oldest daughter off last Saturday to college and it was an exciting time for her and us…I was not sure how I was going to handle the situation once she was all moved in and it was time for us to leave, but I did not feel sad or the need to cry…I felt extreme joy for her because I was just so proud of her accomplishments and all the possibilities that lie ahead for her. I knew at that moment that both Kurt and I had done a great job in raising our daughter and I was comfortable knowing that we were leaving a woman and not a little girl that needed sheltering…

I wanted to highlight a couple of events for this weekend in the Hamptons that might not be on your radar but they are worthy of attending if you have time…

Friday, September 2nd.-3rd…Stop by White’s Friday and Saturday to speak to a representative for the most talk about product line heating up the online chat rooms…IMMUNOCOLOGIE…the 1st ever skin-care formulation to work in cooperation with the skins immune system…White’s now carries this entire line so drop in to sample it and determine for yourself..
