Saturday March 9, 2019
12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

As far as we know, we're the only winery on the east coast that makes Counoise. There might not be ten wineries that do it in the entire country! The grape is originally from the Rhone Valley where its used in the Chateauneuf du Pape blend. We grow it on the Amwell Ridge, our vineyard site across the street from the winery. Sometimes it goes into the Hunterdon Mistral Rose', sometimes into the Hunterdon Mistral Rouge, and when it's special we bottle it as a varietal wine. In 2015 we made just one barrel- less than 20 cases are available. Cherry Grove Farm will be sampling and selling their incredible cheeses, and we will have some fresh baked bread to enjoy with them as well.   March 9 & 10

Tastings are $10 per person. Counoise tastings are complimentary all weekend, beginning with our Open Mic event Friday evening the 8th.

A percentage of the proceeds from this screening will go to SAVE in Skillman. Founded in 1941, SAVE is an independent non-profit animal shelter dedicated to protecting the health and welfare of homeless companion animals in the greater Princeton area.

American Repertory Ballet (ARB) will host its annual gala, "An Enchanted Castle Soirée," inspired by the company's world premiere of Beauty and the Beast, on Saturday, March 9, at 6:00 pm at the Pines Manor in Edison, N.J. Guests will enjoy a French inspired ambiance, silent auction, dinner and dancing alongside artists of American Repertory Ballet. Award-winning radio broadcaster Bert Baron, host of "Jersey Central with Bert Baron," on WCTC (1450AM) will be the Master of Ceremonies.

The primary goal of the fundraiser is to raise money for ARB's merit and need-based scholarship program, which awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships last year. The fundraiser will also enable the organization to present professional ballet productions such as a world premiere of Kirk Peterson's Beauty and the Beast and American Made: Paul Taylor and Other Works, which will be performed this spring in New York City. This year's gala will honor Christine Zoffinger and Joshua Zinder Architecture + Design (JZA +D) for their outstanding and longtime support of the arts, and Erika Mero, the recipient of the 2019 Audrée Estey Award for Excellence in Dance Education.

Celebrating harp music with Cheryl Cunningham. $30-$65.

Our more intimate concert of the season features music for harp. Haven’t you always been fascinated watching the harpist’s fingers dance around all those strings and wondered about those seven pedals? This evening we will present two of the most famous pieces in the harp repertoire, Maurice Ravel’s Introduction and Allegro and Claude Debussy’s sensuous Dances Sacred and Profane. Our soloist is our very own Cheryl Dungan Cunningham. Cheryl is one of this area’s most respected and in-demand musicians. She has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Kimmel Center, and Academy of Music, as well as in important venues throughout the United States and Canada. She has been soloist with several area orchestras and performs as principal harpist with a number of orchestras in the Philadelphia area, including the Capital Philharmonic. Cheryl can also be heard on several CD recordings. Completing the program will be works by Handel, Vaughn Williams, and Gustav Holst’s extremely popular Saint Paul’s Suite. Our festive reception with wine and light snacks on the Patriots Theater stage follows the performance.

At sea, the boys are discovered by the precocious Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates led by the fearsome Black Stache, the journey quickly turns into a thrilling adventure.
