Join YAANY for a unique wine tasting and book launch party. To celebrate the release of Yale ’86 author Suzanne Mustacich’s book Thirsty Dragon: China’s Lust for Bordeaux and the Threat to the World’s Best Wines, we’re having a Bordeaux wine tasting at Astor Wines + Spirits.
Suzanne’s book is at once a tale of business skulduggery and fierce cultural clashes, adventure and ambition. It offers a behind-the-scenes look at the challenges facing the world’s most famous and prestigious wines, and has been praised by Fareed Zakaria, Jay McInerney, Evan Osnos and William Echikson.
Suzanne will share knowledge, experience and anecdotes from her career as a top Bordeaux wine journalist and a Contributing Editor at Wine Spectator. Of course, there’s no point in talking about Bordeaux without tasting it, so our friends at Astor Wines + Spirits will be pouring a selection of Bordeaux for us to taste, sharing their expertise about the wines of the region, and offering a 15% discount off the purchase of these wines.
Tickets are $7.50 per person ($5 for the first 15), and Suzanne’s book is available for pre-purchase with your order at a 30% discount. Your ticket price includes the wine tasting and an entry into our wine raffle. Proceeds from ticket sales support YAANY’s ongoing programatic activities.
