SARATOGA SPRINGS — Sustainable Saratoga has cancelled traditional in-person fundraising activities due to COVID-19. To help during these unusual times, Sustainable Saratoga has organized a Virtual Wine Tasting – a fun, informative, fundraiser to support its programs.

This event will feature the award-winning wines of the Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery, located in New York’s Finger Lakes wine region. The winery has donated a portion of the wines for this event, and all proceeds from the event go directly to helping fund the sustainability efforts of Sustainable Saratoga. 

The Virtual Wine Tasting takes place at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 15. Barbara Frank, Consulting Winemaker and Regional Sales Manager of the Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery, will lead a virtual tasting experience of some of the Dr. Konstantin Frank wines and talk about the winery, including some of their sustainability efforts. Wine & Spirits Magazine named the Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery one of the top 100 Wineries in the World in 2019. 

Choose between 2 wine packages:  For a $75 donation, receive two bottles of wine (Dry Riesling and Cabernet Franc) & some goodies; For a $125 donation, receive four bottles of wine (Gruner Veltliner, Dry Riesling, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc) & some goodies.  All wine packages come in a reusable canvas bag and will be accompanied by a dark chocolate bar from Barkeater Chocolates in North Creek, and a Sustainable Saratoga window cling.

Sustainable Saratoga is a not-for-profit organization that promotes sustainable practices and the protection of natural resources, through education, advocacy and action, for the benefit of current and future generations in the Saratoga Springs area.
