The Junior Committee of the New England Society in the City of New York will be holding a Wine Tasting in honor of the first NES reception open to women, held on February 6, 1872 at Delmonico's on the corner of 14th Street and Fifth Avenue.  The original 1872 event netted a $281.15 profit and “all agreed to hold it annually”. 

In honor of the many women who have contributed to NES, we will again be in Lower Manhattan at Astor Center on February 28, 2018, a mere 146 years later, for what promises to be a fun evening.  lease look forward to a selection of red and white wines, cheese, and charcuterie for what promises to be a fun evening as we kick-off our 213th year!
