The VIP Experience
New this year, VIP Gourmet guests will enjoy access to a private VIP lounge where Taste Sommelier Bruce Sanderson, senior editor and tasting director for Wine Spectator, will offer his expertise on champagne while sampling out Nicholas Feuillatte. To pair with this exceptional champagne, this year’s VIP Chef Joey Campanaro will serve a dish that highlights the bold, rich flavors of his restaurant, The Little Owl.
Guests can wine and dine while bidding in the silent auction, which will feature items large and small, including ceramics from GH Pottery as well as surprise gift boxes.
Guests will also have opportunity to bid on luxury, high-end items in the silent auction. Items range in value, and have included such prizes as a trip to Grenada and Napa Valley, gift certificates to New York restaurants, tickets to a New York Knicks game, Platinum Cigars, and much more.
