Tastings and Events

Andrea & Tony Russo, wine educators and retailers, offer wine events for groups from 10 to 100 people and will host wine events at various sites throughout Westchester County in NY or in guest’s homes. With more than 30 years in the wine and spirits business they have hosted hundreds of these events for private clients and not for profit groups throughout Westchester, Connecticut and Manhattan. ARIES, Tony & Andrea have also hosted many winemaker dinners in some of Westchester’s finest restaurants, including “42”, “Sonora’s” in Port Chester, “La Panitiere” in Rye, “La Bocca” in White Plains and many others. Cost for private tastings varies, depending on the number of people and the level of wines. Please contact us to arrange a private tasting event, and we would be happy accommodate you!

Tony & Andrea love to bring ARIES out and give back to the Westchester community, which they are an integral part of. Here is a small list of fundraiser and charitable events that we have participated in recent past:

CLUSTER provides services and programs that assist residents in Yonkers and Westchester and Rockland County to build a better future for themselves and their communities. The focus of all the programs is the empowerment of individuals, families and communities to fulfill their dreams and potential.

The Pleasantville Rotary Club, established in 1929, is one of the older clubs in the area and is comprised of men and women representing local community businesses, professionals and occupations. It is a member of Rotary District, which encompasses Westchester County, Manhattan, the Bronx, Staten Island, and Bermuda. Each year it organizes fundraising events to benefit many local projects and organizations. Among these other activities, the Rotary Club of Pleasantville sponsors and runs a pancake breakfast each fall as well as the Westchester Wine Experience each spring.
