Wendy Crispell is the resident expert on wine & cheese pairings! If you haven’t been to one of her seminars and enjoyed a cruise around Manhattan, there is still time.  New Year’s Eve is included.  It doesn’t get any more romantic than sailing around Manhattan, drinking sparkling wine, listening to live jazz and watching the fireworks on the river at midnight!
