Calling all wine connoisseurs! Join us for Westchester Magazine’s second annual Wine Collector’s Dinner, featured as part of our Wine & Food Festival, on Friday, June 10. Share your most valued vintage with fellow wine lovers, and experience new sips from the cellars of your wine-loving peers.
As summer kicks off in Westchester County, enjoy the majestic nighttime view of the Hudson River from a table at X2O Xavier’s on the Hudson in Yonkers. The restaurant rests atop the only turn-of-the-century Victorian pier still in use on the river, offering a classic yet modern presentation.
The night is also a tribute to the former publisher of Westchester Magazine, Ralph Martinelli. Martinelli, who passed away in 2019, was the visionary behind events like Westchester’s Wine & Food Festival.
This luxurious showcase of unique vintages includes a champagne reception at 6:30 p.m., directly followed by a bottle share and dinner (at 7 p.m.) prepared by award-winning chef, Peter X. Kelly.
