On Friday, October 30th from 7:30 - 8:30 pm, RSVP By October 19th, The ELIJA Foundation will be hosting a virtual wine and cheese tasting to support those affected by Autism. Our first Virtual Wine Tasting Event will feature wines from the Ca’Marcanda (Bolgheri) collection of the Gaja Winery, which was founded more than 150 years ago by Giovanni Gaja in the village of Barbaresco, Italy. These world renowned wines will be paired with cheeses, meats and more, selected by the cheesemongers of Murray’s Cheese Shop, located in the heart of Brooklyn and now Long Island City too. 

Wines and cheeses will be delivered directly to your home several days prior to the event.

We have enlisted Michael Green, a master wine storyteller and Consultant for Gourmet, who will treat you to a truly sensory experience, while building your wine vocabulary, delving into your food pairings and expanding your overall appreciation of the beauty of wine. You will also be taken on a virtual tour of the Gaja vineyard by fifth generation winemaker Giovanni Gaja!

Most importantly, you will learn even more about ELIJA, meet the people who make it so special, and be inspired by the hard work and resilience of our kids and families who are empowered to live their best lives despite the challenges that an Autism diagnosis presents.

Please contact jodi.taggart@elija.org with any questions.

All Sponsorships include access to Pre-Event Toast, recognition on the website and during the event. Wine and cheese included in most sponsorships can be delivered to multiple addresses – so you can share with family and friends!
