French Schmench. Try Israeli Wine.
Can the wineries of Israel hold their own against vintners from well-known wine-producing regions such as California, France and Italy? Judge for yourself at Jewish Family Services’ Israeli Wine Festival on Jan. 19 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Troutman Sanders Building (1001 Haxall Point).
The event will feature red, white and dessert wines from top wineries in Israel, along with food by Richmond chefs from Anything Goes Catering, BlackFinn Restaurant & Saloon, Old Original Bookbinder’s, Carena’s Jamaican Grille, Jay Frank, The Melting Pot, Three Monkey’s, and Rostov’s Coffee & Tea. Plus, guests will enjoy a silent auction of travel, jewelry and more.
Tickets are $75 in advance and $100 at the door. Proceeds benefit Jewish Family Services, a nonprofit agency that offers programs such as counseling, home health care and adoption. For more information, call 282-5644 or visit www.jfsrichmond.org.
