LadyDrinks Turns 8
August 3rd Celebration
Guess what? LadyDrinks is turning 8 years old! We celebrate at Liberty Hall, home of the first NJ Governor with a wine tasting on the patio.
WHAT IS MADEIRA?
Saturday, August 3rd, LadyDrinks Women’s Networking celebrates 8 years of hosting events supporting South Asian professional women. In partnership with the NY Adventure Club, we host a private tour of Liberty Hall, Home of New Jersey’s first governor followed by a madeira tasting on the patio. Gentlemen and spouses are welcome!
WHAT IS MADEIRA
A fortified wine made on the Portuguese islands, off the coast of Africa. Madeira is produced in a variety of styles ranging from dry wines which can be consumed as an aperitif to sweet wines usually consumed with dessert.
Madeira was also a regular port of call for ships travelling to the East Indies. The Dutch East India Company became a regular customer, picking up large (112 gal/423 l) casks of wine known as “pipes” for their voyages to India.
During a recent restoration of Liberty Hall, belonging to William Livingston, New Jersey’s first elected governor, one of the country’s largest and rarest collections of 18th-century Madeira wine was discovered tucked away in the wine cellar. We will toast to the 8 year anniversary of LadyDrinks with a Madeira tasting just as his fellow founding fathers did after signing the Declaration of Independence.
