On a quiet sunny afternoon, more than 300 guests made their way to the Marconi Automotive Museum for The Winery Restaurant & Wine Bar’s 8th annual Sunday in the Vineyard fundraiser benefitting the Marconi Foundation for Kids and The Pasticos Foundation. Amid a stunning collection of rare and vintage automobiles, those in attendance chatted and mingled while sampling some of the 80-plus wines present for the tasting, many of which were rare finds from boutique wineries across the globe. To accompany the wine selection, a host of savory trays brimming hors d’ oeuvres expertly prepared by The Winery’s executive chef and partner, Yvon Goetz, swirled around the room. The festivities then moved to the runway, where a striking show hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue captivated all with the season’s best styles. Ending the afternoon on a high note, a thrilling live auction saw guests bid on a host of exquisite prizes before they slowly trickled out of the ballroom, savoring each moment they could spare for a most worthy cause.
