I recently took part in an eventful weekend for wine lovers here. It was the New York City Wine and Food Festival, organized by Southern Wine & Spirits, from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2. Wine Spectator co-sponsored five dinners around town. I attended the Ai Fiori dinner, where chef Michael White and his team dazzled the 70 hungry attendees with a six-course menu paired with wines chosen by Palm Bay International's VP of fine wine development, Laura DePasquale.
Sunday night, it was downtown to Restaurant Marc Forgione, where Krug Champagne hosted a dinner honoring master sommelier Roger Dagorn for his 40 years of service in the hospitality industry.
