Wine Luxury Soiree
Wine Luxury—the multifaceted online platform and magazine dedicated to the celebration of a wine and culinary lifestyle—recently hosted Soirée, a masquerade-inspired evening at The City Club, complete with world-class wines, fashion and even a live performance by Franc D'Ambrosio, The World’s Longest Running Phantom. The evening celebrated the WLX Wine & Dine magazine and served as a preview to the upcoming Wineluxury.com platform.
"Soirée was an ideal opportunity for people to explore Wine Luxury and also to get a glimpse of the digital platform we are about to launch," states Wine Luxury's CEO and Founder, Daniel Feder. “It's going to be an incredible tool for people who enjoy fine wine, cuisine and the luxury lifestyle.”
Aficionados from Telford's guided guests through the etiquette and enjoyment of fine cigars, served in the “Cigar Lounge,” and VIP guests enjoyed exclusive, all-night access to select limited wines, Tsar Nicoulai Caviar, Point Reyes Farmstead cheeses, delectable bites from Trident, and premium spirits like Macallan and Highland Park scotches, Brugal Rum, and Purity Vodka paired with Glace Luxury Ice in the WLX “Luxury Lounge.”
The event also hosted fashion luminaries Lily Blue, Tuan Tran, Monique Zhang, West Coast Leather, and Swell Attitude, who revealed some of their dramatic designs created expressly for the evening.
Guests enjoyed a surprise performance by Jonathan Cain from the band Journey (and proprietor of Finale Wines!), while participating in auctions benefiting nonprofit organizations Share Our Strength and AirCraft Casualty Emotional Support Services (ACCESS).
