Partners in Health Benefit March 19, 2019

19th Annual CSW-Louis/Dressner Selections Benefit Tasting for Partners in Health - Sunday, March 24th, 1:00-4:45pm at Chambers!


After a 4-year Covid delay, please join us again on Sunday, March 24th between 1:00pm and 4:45pm as we taste over 50 wines with 14 of the finest winemakers from France and Italy, imported by Louis/Dressner Selections.  All proceeds benefit Partners in Health "saving lives, revitalizing communities & transforming global health."

Louis/Dressner Selections: Natural viticulture, hand harvesting, low yields, wild yeasts, non-interventionist winemaking, and, most importantly, enjoyment, are the "principles" of Louis/Dressner. These growers are a unique and fascinating group committed to the natural expression of their terroirs and culture through honest, traditional wines. This is a fantastic group of winemakers - there will be wonderful discoveries made at this great event! Here's the list of vignerons attending, with Pascaline Lepeltier, David Lillie and Eben Lillie on hand to help out:

Saverio Venturini from Monte dall'Ora (Valpolicella); Laure-Anne and Clement Nicolas from Bellivière (Jasnières); Simone Foti from I Vigneri (Etna); Sophie Ilbert from Combel la Serre (Cahors); Julien Pinon (Vouvray); Kewin Descombes (Beaujolais); Christelle and Elie Renardat from Renardat-Fache (Bugey); Salvatore and Stefania Marino (Sicily); Emanuele Mazzoleni from Occhipinti (Sicily); Irene Carfagna from Altura (Tuscany); Corrado Dottori from La Distesa (Marche); Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme (Cheverny); Hervé Villemade (Cheverny); Daniela and Antonio di Gratolla from Cantina Giardino (Campania)

Partners in Health:  A number of years ago, Joe Dressner suggested that we use our wine events together to raise money for a charity that would provide quality health care to those in need around the world. Joe received the finest care available while combating his illness and he wanted to help others who have no access to this level of medical assistance. After much research, Joe decided that Partners in Health, for their work in Haiti and elsewhere, was the organization most deserving of our support. Partners In Health: "Our mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. By establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations based in settings of poverty, Partners In Health strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair. We draw on the resources of the world’s leading medical and academic institutions and on the lived experience of the world’s poorest and sickest communities. At its root, our mission is both medical and moral. It is based on solidarity, rather than charity alone." To donate:
