RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Ridgefield's Keeler Tavern Garden House will be the setting for a wine tasting and music experience hosted by the husband-and-wife team Fred Tregaskis and Louise Baranger.
The event will be held on Thursday, June 2, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.
Throughout the evening, guests can taste a variety of wines and sample hors d'oeuvres as they listen to music from the ages, from Bach to Bebop, chosen specifically to accompany each wine.
In addition to wines and hors d’oeuvres, the program also includes both a silent and a live auction. Tickets for the event are $50 per person.
The event will benefit Rides for Ridgefield.
Tregaskis is the owner and designer of New England Wine Cellars, which builds customized wine storage facilities for both private and commercial clientele. He is also the host of NPR’s "A Moment in Wine," a weekly spot in which he introduces and describes a particular wine, often an emerging favorite.
During each tasting, internationally acclaimed trumpet player Louise Baranger will lead her Revolutionary Brass quintet in music sets to complement the wines. Throughout her career, she has played with many leading jazz artists, performed at most major jazz festivals, on television and for two U.S. presidents. She leads the Revolutionary Brass in a variety of music genres with a focus on jazz.
