Exciting plans are being finalized for the 10th annual “Wine On Harvest Moon,” to be celebrated on Saturday, Oct. 15, at the historic Deering Estate at Cutler.

This year’s theme “Taste, Tango and Toast the Andes,” celebrates the fine wines, unique cuisine, and rich culture of Chile and Argentina.

Joining Mary Pettit, executive director of the Deering Estate Foundation, for a strategic planning meeting on the veranda of the Richmond Cottage were Chilean Consul General Juan Luis Nilo; Gustavo Rodriguez, Chilean Trade Commissioner, and Fernanda Mondaca, project manager for the Trade Commission; Howard Tendrich, event chair; Henry Aguilera, art curator, and Bill Irvine, executive director of the Deering Estate at Cutler.

An immersive cultural experience is being created for the event with fine wines complemented by food rich in flavors of the Andes, fine art on exhibit, and colorful performances that showcase the two countries.

The casually elegant fundraiser takes place every fall under the golden light of the harvest moon, and highlights a different wine region of the world. Proceeds from the event benefit the Deering Estate Foundation, a community-based charitable organization that is dedicated to preserving, protecting and perpetuating the legacy of the historic estate for generations to come.
