The Greek America Foundation is proud to receive support from some of the most renowned and well-regarded wineries and wine companies in Greece for our 2022 Gabby Awards in New York City.
The Manousakis Winery and Cavino Mega Spileo are both generously offering curated wines from their bespoke collections for our guests to enjoy during our weekend events. They have also contributed special items as part of our silent auction. Click here to register and bid (it is not required that you attend our event to participate).
On Thursday, June 2, Alexandra Manousakis will pair wines alongside a special dinner menu during our sponsor’s dinner (for sponsor-level donors and by invitation only) at Mina’s NYC, the namesake restaurant of award-winning chef Mina Stone located inside one of the most famous museums in the world.
Guests will dine on a unique meal designed by Stone herself and will be treated to a spirited talk about her illustrious career. Manousakis is an equally-acclaimed artist and vintner whose namesake winery in Hania, Crete has won numerous awards.
Alexandra will pair wines alongside Stone’s menu selections and share her story of how she ended up settling in Crete after growing up in Washington DC.
For the Gabby Awards dinner and ceremony on Friday, June 3, Cavino Mega Spileo has donated some of its best wines from the high altitude vineyards of the Mega Spileo estate, located near the town of Kalavryta, Greece.
During our cocktail hour, guests will be able to enjoy a very aromatic and refreshing Mega Spileo Sauvignon Blanc. And during dinner, guests can choose between a Mega Spileo III Cuvee white and Mega Spileo Cuvee red.
