Wines on the Terrace – Domaine Skouras – September 19th, 2019
September 19 @ 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Please join us on September 19th for a collaborative Wines on the Terrace. The Fowler House is helping to raise awareness for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and will be donating $2 from each ticket sold to this great cause.
At September’s event, we will be featuring Domaine Skouras (Greece) wines, deliciously paired Fowler House Kitchen appetizers, and a silent auction. The tasting flight will include a Red, White, and Rosé from Domaine Skouras.
Skouras Winery was started in 1986 in Pyrgela, Argos by Dijon-trained oenologist George Skouras. Working with both indigenous varieties as well as international varieties, Skouras started producing very high quality Greek wines in the late 1980’s. The first bottling of the Megas Oenos, his flagship wine launched in 1988 was the first wine in Greece to blend Aghiorghitiko with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Nemea has been regarded as a great winemaking region since the time of the ancient Greeks; Homer called this region Ampeloessa which literally means “Full of vines”. Recent archeological excavations have revealed winemaking being done here over 3500 years ago.
All proceeds from the silent auction support the 1852 Foundation and allow for the continued restoration work of the Fowler House Mansion.
Tickets (must be 21+, $20) include a sampling of each wine and unlimited appetizers. Our Wines on the Terrace events happen the third Thursday of each month.
