Judgment of Paris Wine Tasting Event

Saturday, Jun 4, 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM

Wilton Library is holding a special 40th anniversary 'mini-reenactment' of the famous 1976 winetasting event when a handful of relatively unknown California wines beat out several of the top French wines in a blind tasting by French judges on their own turf in Paris.  The presenter and tasting coordinator will be George Taber who was the only journalist present at the tasting. In his book Judgment of Paris, he recounts the birth of modern winemaking in California leading up to the historic event that truly put California wine on the world’s shopping list. His book was the basis for the 2008 movie Bottle Shock and another movie entitled Judgment of Paris is going into production this summer.  After a 40-year journalism career, Taber turned to writing books. In 2005 he came out with Judgment of Paris and in 2014 Chasing Gold: The Incredible Story of How the Nazis Stole Europe’s Bullion. He will share the history of the event and then participants will have the chance to 'blind-taste” some red and white wines from California and France choosing their favorites and paying homage to the historic event.

Thursday, Jun 9, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

William Leuchtenburg, one of the great presidential historians of the century, comes to Wilton Library to discuss his most recent book, The American President: From Teddy Roosevelt to Bill Clinton.  The book is an enthralling account of American presidential actions from the assassination of William McKinley in 1901 to Bill Clinton's last night in office in January 2001.

Leuchtenburg sheds light on presidents battling with contradictory forces. Caught between maintaining their reputation and executing their goals, many practiced deceits that shape their image today. But he also reveals how the country's leaders pulled off magnificent achievements worthy of the nation's pride. Leuchtenburg is the William Rand Kenan, Jr. Professor Emeritus of History at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Over the course of six decades, he taught at Columbia University, UNC-Chapel Hill, and, as a visiting professor, at Harvard, Cornell, Duke, William and Mary and other American universities, as well as at Oxford where he held the Harmsworth chair.

She will focus on how these mouth-text exchanges create oral/written-word conversations when facing each other in multichannel video, including the acts of listening, interruptions, awkward pauses, and external interruptions.  Co-sponsored by Weir Farm Art Center and Weir Farm National Historic Site and presented by Wilton Library. No charge. Registration suggested.
