The New Hampshire Liquor Commission (NHLC) will host its 14th annual NH Wine Week celebration in January 2017, complete with unprecedented access to nationally and internationally acclaimed winemakers, intimate wine dinners, bottle signings and wine tastings.
“Interest in New Hampshire Wine Week continues to grow dramatically each and every year, with good reason,” says Nicole Brassard-Jordan, NHLC Marketing Director. “The week-long celebration of wine features bottle signings, wine tastings, and the largest wine event in Northern New England, the Winter Wine Spectacular, as well as dozens of intimate wine dinners all over the state pairing delicious food with fantastic wines. On a scale unlike any other wine event in the country, New Hampshire Wine Week affords wine lovers the unique opportunity to interact one-on-one with over 60 wine industry titans, boutique vineyard owners and local producers. Anyone who enjoys wine, from casual fans to wine aficionados, simply cannot miss this fantastic week of events.”
“With more than 7,000 wines to choose from at 79 New Hampshire Liquor & Wine Outlets statewide, choosing a bottle can be overwhelming,” Brassard-Jordan said. “New Hampshire Wine Week is the perfect opportunity to let wine celebrities and aficionados guide you to new and unique offerings, based on your taste preferences. It is simply a great chance to learn about and appreciate all the great wines New Hampshire has to offer, from local wines to wines produced in California, Oregon, and all over the world.”
Wine Week culminates with the 14th Annual Easter Seals Winter Wine Spectacular, the largest wine tasting in northern New England. Raising critical funding for Easter Seals New Hampshire and drawing a sold-out crowd of more than 1,200 people each year, the Winter Wine Spectacular boasts more than 1,500 wines, delicious local cuisine, a silent auction and raffle, the Bellman Cellar Select VIP tasting room, and the chance to meet and learn from more than 60 wine personalities.
“We are so grateful for the NHLC’s continued support of Easter Seals New Hampshire,” said Christine Pederson, director of events and corporate relations for Easter Seals New Hampshire, which provides services to ensure all people with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities. “Last year’s Winter Wine Spectacular raised critical funds to support our statewide early intervention program, which provides much-needed services and therapy for hundreds of children ages three months to three years with a variety of developmental delays and physical disabilities.”
