Our journey begins at 2:00 pm when we gather at Back Label Wine Merchants, Chelsea’s newest wine and spirits emporium known for their prolific selection and weekly wine classes. We’ll be greeted by charismatic co-owner and wine expert Patrick Watson, who will be serving savory cheese and snacks fresh from Black Label’s sister store, Stinky Bklyn, as we mingle in anticipation of the afternoon’s sensorial treats!
This event will be a Master Class, pairing fragrance, wine and candy. We’ll explore the nuances in taste and smell as we compare and discuss the stellar selections, while the experts unveil their world and process. Our fragrance partner is the wonderful Kelly Jones, founder and fragrance sommelier of Kelly & Jones Eau de Parfum, a scent collection inspired by wine notes and bouquet. Our confection collaborators are the dynamic husband and wife team of Glyn and Kelly (The Candyman) Jaime, owners of the fantastic candy mecca The Sweet Shop, which is known for retro, hard-to-find, small-batch, local and imported sweet delicacies.
We’ll have the opportunity to taste six wines that Patrick has curated to meld perfectly with the Kelly & Jones fragrances we’ll be sampling. Glyn and The Candyman have in turn matched candies and sorbets to the wine and scent accords. There will be ample time to try all the wines, fragrances and sweets and to chat one-on-on with Patrick, Kelly, Glyn and The Candyman. And the best part is – if you fall in love with something you’ve experienced during the event, it will be available to purchase and take home with special pricing and exclusive promotions!
The Registration Fee of $49 includes the Master Class, light snacks, wine and candy tastings, fragrance sampling, and additional surprises!
