The Friends of Forbes Library held its fourth annual fall wine tasting benefit at the library on Friday, Sept. 26, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
A large array of wines were offered along with hors d’oeuvres from local restaurants. The wines and food will gave the benefit an international flair. Wines available for sampling, were provided by Liquors 44’s distributors and importers, include both whites and reds from the U.S., France, Italy, Spain, and other countries. A variety of sakes, ports, and beers will be offered as well. Appetizers included cheeses, sushi, stuffed grape leaves, salmon, hummus, and pakora. Among the local restaurants and merchants providing the fare were River Valley Market, India House, Ibiza Tapas Bar, Paul & Elizabeth’s, and Sylvester’s Restaurant.
The wine tasting is supported this year by a generous gift from PeoplesBank. Other sponsors are Liquors 44, Northampton Rentals, and Duclos Design. All proceeds from the gala will benefit Forbes Library in support of children’s and young adult programs, staff computer training, music and lecture series, preservation of Special Collections, and the library’s book and media fund.
HOPE TO SEE YOU NEXT YEAR !
