Winter Festival Tasting at Zachys

zachyswinterfestivalFriday, December 1 ˑ 4:00pm - 7:00pm
Winter Festival Tasting

Join Zachys for a delightful tasting through the European countryside! They will be featuring selections from France, Italy and Portugal.

France:
Though famous for their value-driven village level wines, Louis Jadot produces amazing Premier and Grand Cru wines, to boot. We will be sampling a wide variety of Beaujolais and Burgundies just to give you a taste of all that Jadot is capable of. The range offered by the terroir of Burgundy is what makes the reds and whites so versatile when it comes to food pairing during the holiday season. Let Zachys give you a tour and open your eyes to some heavenly combinations.

Italy:
Looking for something heavier and richer to cozy up to? Come and taste two top sellers: Sette Ponti's Crognolo and Tenuta San Guido's Guidalberto. The 2015 Guidalberto originally received a 94-point rating from James Suckling, which he has since been upgraded to a 95, dubbing the wine "Fantastic" and "Best ever." This delightful Tuscan blend is a steal.

Portugal:
In 1692 an English merchant by the name of Job Bearsley founded a wine business in Portugal; 325 years later this little company has grown up to become the internationally acclaimed Taylor Fladgate. Port is often overlooked as many people think it's just an after dinner drink. Give Port another chance as its sweetness pairs magically with a salty cheese like Brie or Stilton; opposites truly do attract!

Shop Early, Shop Often, Shop Zachys

Join Zachys Saturday, December 2 from 12 to 4pm to taste some delightful wines that are sure get you in the holiday spirit! They will be featuring Trimbach's Riesling, which will redefine your preconceived notions of Riesling as it is light on its feet with bright acidity, minerality and a clean dry finish. For our Burgundy fans, Zachys has Henri Darnat's rouge and blanc, which show that there are still amazing values in the region that truly exemplify the notion of terroir-driven wines. Last but certainly not least, you must try the Rollan de By from Jean Guyon, who is a personal friend of Zachys from the Médoc region. Year after year, Guyon proudly produces some of the finest wines of the region at great prices and his 2011 is drinking beautifully right now.

Picasso's Pyrenees, or How a Town in the Pyrenees Became a Center of Modern Art at the Scarsdale Library

Young artists including Picasso, Braque, Matisse, and Gris spent summers in Céret in the 1910s when Picasso and Braque were developing cubism. This group became known as the School of Céret. After World War I, another wave of artists and writers including Soutine, Dufy, and Cocteau descended on the town.

CNC Invites Public to Organizational Meeting on December 5

CNCGraphicScarsdale Citizens Nominating Committee ("CNC") welcomes the ten newly elected members and invites the public to its first meeting Tuesday December 5th 2017 at 8PM at the 3rd floor meeting room at Village Hall 1001 Post Road, Scarsdale, NY 10583. Come to the meeting to learn more about Scarsdale's Non-Partisan System for selecting candidates to run for Village office on the Scarsdale Citizens' Non-Partisan Party. Scarsdale Public Television will record the meeting.

The CNC consists of 30 elected Scarsdale residents who represent their neighborhood election units (Edgewood, Fox Meadow, Greenacres, Heathcote or Quaker Ridge). Ten new members are elected to the CNC each November to serve staggered three-year terms. The volunteer group meets from December to January to seek, interview, and evaluate potential candidates to run for Village office. This year the CNC will nominate individuals to run for three openings on the Scarsdale Village Board. Trustees Marc Samwick and Deborah Pekarek will be finishing their second two-year terms and Trustee Jane Veron will be completing her first two-year term. The General Village Election is at Village Hall on Tuesday, March 20, 2018.

Scarsdale's Non-Partisan System has been operating successfully for over 100 years, following a contentious election in 1909. The goal of the Non-Partisan system is to attract qualified citizens who would otherwise avoid campaigning, but would be willing to run for office in elections that are generally uncontested. The CNC's deliberations and due diligence on all potential nominees is kept confidential to further encourage well-qualified volunteers to apply for a spot on the Non-Partisan slate. There are 4 non-elected and non-voting administrative members of the CNC present to insure adherence to the procedural requirements of the Non-Partisan Resolution. Potential candidates also have the option to run for office outside of the Non-Partisan system under provisions of New York State law.

Are you interested in running for Trustee? Do you know someone who would serve the Village of Scarsdale well? Contact any CNC representative listed below; or inform the CNC Chair, ML Perlman, at (917) 679-8779 or themlperlman@gmail.com.
