Raise a glass to Project MOST, which provides year-round extracurricular enrichment programs for East End children and families, during a special virtual Holiday Wine Tasting Fundraiser on Friday, December 18.

"We appreciate all who will be participating in our Holiday Wine Tasting Event," Rebecca Morgan Taylor, Project MOST Executive Director, reflected. "At this time, our New York grant funding has been delayed for over a year."

Virtual Wine Coach Co-founders Melissa Principi and Michelle Waters - who are both Level 2 Certified Sommeliers - will lead the tasting, which will be held over Zoom.

"The event will be interactive and similar to an in-person experience!" Principi noted. "We start the tasting with a short background of where the grapes are grown and the story behind the bottle. We discuss soil types and harvesting the vineyard - winemaking basics like stainless steel versus oak and the flavors each method will give the wine."

Principi continued, "Next, we'll go through the tasting method that professional sommeliers follow and finish the evening discussing the best food and wine pairings. Our interactive virtual tasting will have trivia questions and my personal experiences and stories working for top producing New York and California wineries."

The Holiday Wine Tasting Fundraiser will commence at 7:00 p.m.

Registration is $75 per household, which includes two bottles of wine donated by Michael Cinque owner of Amagansett Wine and Spirits, as well as recommendations of cheese pairings. There is free local delivery from Riverhead to Montauk.

Proceeds from the digital gathering will support Project MOST. The nonprofit's mission is "to inspire all children and families to be empowered members of the community - to want to learn, create, express themselves, and help others." Project MOST serves over 450 children and youth in the Town of East Hampton and the surrounding communities. Programming, which covers Arts & Culture, S.T.E.M., Health & Wellness, and more, is offered after school, on the weekend, and during the summer.

"All proceeds from this event will help to make up for the delay in state funding which will enable us to continue to offer our high quality after school program in the community," Morgan Taylor concluded.
