CTbites Team

Nicholas Roberts Fine Wines, Darien. CT will host the 8th Annual Harvest Wine Tasting to benefit Turning Wine Into Water and Catholic Relief Services on Saturday, November 16th. This year's event will be held at The Avenue Gallery, 173 Main Street, Norwalk, CT

Turning Wine Into Water has committed to funding a major CRS water and sanitation project in remote regions of Ethiopia.  The project, a commitment by TWIW of $150,000, will save the lives of thousands of children who die each year from the lack of clean water. 

The Harvest Wine Tasting this year is a three tasting room event, featuring wine via Nicholas Roberts Fine Wines and food prepared by Chef Rob Troilo.  

Guests can register for any or all of the tasting rooms. 

In the Harvest Room, guests will have the opportunity to taste approximately 70 wines from the portfolios of Michael Skurnik Wines, 55 Degrees, Domaine Select, Connecticut Distributors, Wilson Daniels, Maison Marques & Domaines and Worldwide Wines.

In the Cellar Door Room, guests will sample a selection of rare and limited release wines including a vertical of Corison Cabernet, Chateau Hosanna and Vilmart Grand Cellier among many others.

Both the Harvest Room and the Cellar Door room will be open to guests from 5:00pm until 8:00pm

At 8::00pm a special Champagne reception and Harvest Wine Dinner will follow.  The four course menu, created by award winning chef Robert Troilo, will feature farm fresh goods from local purveyors. Each of the four courses has been carefully crafted to match the wines selected for the dinner by Peter Troilo. Wine service will be provided by Amy Dixon and Peter Troilo. Only a limited number of seats for the Harvest Dinner are still available.

Registrations for each room are limited and can be made by visiting

TWIW made an initial contribution of $30,000 in October to inaugurate the project...  Since then, an additional $75,000 has been raised.  The organization hopes to complete the funding requirements through proceeds from the November 16th Harvest Tasting.
