Did Someone Say Wine?

Bastille Day Wine Supper

Vive la France! Staff members at Gramercy Mansion enjoyed Chef’s Expressions’ annual Bastille Day Wine Supper in the Mansion on Friday, July 14. Complete with close to 100 guests, French-inspired food and delicious wine, the event was a night to remember!


The menu featured six courses each paired carefully with a complimentary wine. Courses were complete with delicious toppings, stuffing and sauces. This unique menu was exciting to try and full of many firsts!

The Bastille Day Wine Supper was in benefit of Meals on Wheels, who has a mission “to enable people to live independently at home through the provision of nutritious meals, personal contact and related services.” Each wine supper is in support of a different organization and 20% of wine sales go towards the chosen organization.

We want to give a special shout-out to the rest of the vendors who made the Mansion so much fun at the wine supper. Flowers and Fancies created the beautiful centerpieces that featured blue hydrangeas, white roses and more. The DJ from Absolute Entertainment filled the Atrium Room with relaxing music. Finally, Umbrella Syndicate captured all of the awesome moments of the night. To see more photos from the event, click here.
