The events are held at the luxurious Hilton Short Hill Hotel & Spa, winner of the highly coveted AAA 4 Diamond Award. Our tastings take place in 2 rooms: The Grand Ballroom and the Tented Patio Pavilion and provide over 100 fine wines for tasting. To accompany the wine, the hotel’s culinary experts provide a first class selection of light hors d'oeuvres in addition to the antipasto, cheese, bread and pasta stations strategically placed in the center of each tasting area.

These events are produced in partnership with The Wine Library, a local store bringing you the finest wines out on the market today. Not only is The Wine Library our content provider for both events, but they also bring in their wine experts to teach 3 classes at both events, educating our class attendees on the production, taste, and quality of wines from specific regions.
To create an atmosphere unlike most other tasting events, all three events present LIVE JAZZ music from some of today’s top artists. In the past, we have brought talents such as Philippe Saisse, Gil Parris, Jeff Kashiwa, Marcus Anderson and Matt Marshak out to The Hilton Short Hills for the enjoyment of our fellow wine and jazz lovers. The combination is quite relaxing and keeps people coming back each year for more.
A portion of the proceeds from our events go to Family Promise of Bergen County, an outstanding organization dedicated to alleviating the plight of the homeless in New Jersey.
There are sponsorship opportunities available both in April and November. Please contact email@example.com for more information on how to become a sponsor at one of our premiere wine events.
