Wine offers “constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy,” said Benjamin Franklin. Wine is “one of the most civilized things in the world,” said Ernest Hemingway. But it was the 18th century writer John Gay who may have said it best when he wrote, “From wine what sudden friendship springs.” No wonder Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) chapters are hosting so many wine tastings!
The New York chapter was one of the earliest to embrace wine tasting as a networking activity. On Nov. 20, ACG New York celebrates its 11th Annual Private Equity Wine Tasting Gala, held at Gotham Hall, the classic former headquarters of Greenwich Savings Bank.
