Finding the perfect outdoor space in NYC is hard to come by but there are a few secret gardens that are worth scouting out. On Monday I had the opportunity to celebrate the first day of Summer with Dreaming Tree Wines- a collaboration between winemaker Sean Mckenzie and Dave Matthews.
The event was held at the New York Marble Cemetery- a private yard (that is open to the public every 4th Sunday of the month from October through April). Guests enjoyed extra daylight hours with glasses of Dreaming Tree while tasting bites from Dave Matthews Band head chef Fiona Bohane’s collection of Recipes from the Road – special dishes inspired by Dave Matthews Band tour stops and created to pair with The Dreaming Tree. Winemaker Sean McKenzie was on-hand to guide guests through the portfolio and introduce the new Sauvignon Blanc. The backyard was the perfect place to kick off Summer, especially since I got the chance to toast a few s'mores and enjoy the outdoors with the perfect wine, the perfect food and the perfect company!
