New York, NY (PRWEB) March 18, 2014
New Jersey Wine Festivals will present their 7th Annual New Jersey Spring Wine Festival at the Hilton Short Hills on Friday, May 9, 2014. The spring wine tasting event includes 150+ wines curated by the experts of the Wine Library, an array of hors d’oeuvres and light fare from the Hilton’s AAA 4-Diamond award-wining chefs, plus artisan food sampling tables. Adding to the festive atmosphere, acclaimed jazz guitarist Matt Marshak and his band will perform throughout the evening.
Tasting tables located throughout the Hilton’s Grand Ballroom, Livingston Room, Garden Foyer, and Patio Pavilion will feature a superb array of quality wines from around the world. Selections include new and old world styles, encompassing classic regions such as Bordeaux and Rioja as well as newer finds from California, New York, Chile, Australia, and more.
”It’s wonderful to be back at the Hilton Short Hills with our seventh spring tasting,” notes S.W. Kimball, founder of New Jersey Wine Festivals. “We look forward to another tremendous selection of wines handpicked by the aficionados of the Wine Library as well as tasty light offerings from the Hilton's culinary team and select artisan food sponsors, plus great live music.”
Musical guest Matt Marshak, a popular artist on the jazz tour circuit (Seabreeze, Rehoboth, Hartford Jazz, Low Country, and the Dubai International Jazz Festival, just this past February) keeps finding new audiences with his new, fresh contemporary jazz sound. New Jersey Wine Festivals producers are pleased to welcome Matt and his band back after the memorable performance that had everyone on their feet dancing at the inaugural New Jersey Winter Wine Festival in 2013.
