Winvian Hosts Nomworthy Fundraiser for CT Northeast Organic Farming Association

18 Sep

If you’ve been following us, you might remember that we’ve talked about Winvian in Morris a couple of times.  When we shared the news that five Connecticut towns were listed in the Top 25 New England Food Towns, we excitedly shared that Morris was ranked #11.  A major reason for this ranking had to do with Winvian, a unique resort with a restaurant run by the amazing Chef Chris Eddy.  But, it’s not just diners who have recognized this restaurant…it’s also AAA.  When we shared the recent 4 and 5 AAA Diamond ratings, Winvian was the only restaurant in the state to earn a 5 AAA Diamond rating!

So, when we heard from Rosemary at Going Greenie (she is awesome, btw) that Winvian would be hosting a fundraiser for CT NOFA on 9/29 from 12 to 3 pm, we knew that we had to share this great event with all of you.  First off, it will benefit the Connecticut chapter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association.  They help to not only keep organic agriculture strong in Connecticut, but help to bring more of it to farms.  Annual memberships to CT NOFA are normally $50 per person, but if you attend this special fundraiser at Winvian, your $125 ticket (register here) lets you take part in all the culinary fun, but also makes you a member.  And here’s what you can expect, right from the CT NOFA site:

* Wide array of signature appetizers and desserts by Winvian’s Executive Chef Chris Eddy

* The freshest tastings from Winvian’s own farm and other local farms

* Tour of Winvian’s sustainable, non-GMO gardens

* A peek at Winvian’s luxurious and whimsical cottages

* Wine, beer and sparkling beverages

* Live music

* Organic Leadership Recognition Award presentation

* Auction

* Complimentary Valet Parking

We hope you can make it.  This promises to be an afternoon to remember!
