For the Nymphoto Openings we were looking for a decent but affordable wine. It had to be white because red is just to messy in a gallery. You also want a wine that is decent enough so people can drink it without food. Melanie and I tasted a couple of wines settled on one, only to have the husband later taste it and being underwhelmed. Astor Wine to the rescue.
A very helpful seller named David at Astor Wine pointed us to the Spanish Wine "Savia Viva Clasico Penedes". An affordable smooth, light, dry-ish wine with a beautiful bottle.
My father-in-law chef thought it decent. The fact that it is light is a pro for me. I don't drink much but more importantly light is good when serving wine at a crowded opening. It keeps things mellow.
And talking about openings. I hope you can come down to Tribeca this Thursday for the artist reception of NYMPHOTO PRESENTS @ Sasha Wolf. I am exited about this exhibit, I think it is a dynamic and reflective show. And includes very talented women artists.
I am also really excited to report that one work sold as the show was hung! A collector loved it that much.
